  1. Explaining the significance of quotations

  2. Learning to effectively analyse and discuss specific quotations is one of the most important skills you will learn this year.

  3. Learning to effectively analyse and discuss specific quotations is one of the most important skills you will learn this year. There is a clear step by step process that you must follow.

  4. 1) Set up the quotation2) Integrate3) Connect4) Analyse/Discuss(SICA)

  5. 1) Set up the quotation • You must give the quotations some context so that your reader is not left wondering where in the story the quotation came from. • What was happening at the time, and/or who said it.

  6. 2) Integrate • You must integrate the quotation into a sentence so that your discussion flows naturally.

  7. 3) Connect • You must integrate the quotation to a specific literary element such as, theme, symbol, characterization, imagery etc.

  8. 4) Analyse/Discuss • You must clearly discuss how the quotation is a good example of the literary element you have chosen.

  9. Skill Practice: Explain the significance of the following quotation. • “Perhaps my father had a reluctance to look at things too closely himself. He wanted to like people, and he may have found it easier to do if he kept them a little out of focus.” p.187

  11. Early in The Skating Party, Maida, the narrator is explaining her life and talking about her family members. Maida says, “Perhaps my father had a reluctance to look at things too closely himself. He wanted to like people, and he may have found it easier to do if he kept them a little out of focus” (p. 98) This quotation develops the theme of, after finding out too much about something or someone, you may be left wishing that you never gained that knowledge in the first place. This is evident when Maida finds out the real story surrounding the night of the skating party. She found out that her Uncle Nathan did pick which girl to save. Maida now will look at her uncle differently and wish that she didn’t know the truth. When Maida is telling us that her father “had a reluctance to look at things too closely” (p. 98) it is for the reason that the less he knows about someone, the better. Her father doesn’t want to find out about something, then look at the person differently after. With Maida pushing for answers and learning more than she bargained for, she now understands her father’s point of view. Knowledge is not always power, knowledge can hurt you.

  20. Skill Practice: Explain the significance of the following quotation. • “Liking wouldn’t have entered into it,” my father said. “Your grandfather had a family to feed. He knew where his duty lay.” p.189

  22. Near the middle of The Skating Party, Maida, the narrator, is talking to her mother, her father, and Uncle Nathan. They are discussing the stone man when Maida asks why her grandfather didn’t like the stone man. Maida’s father is the first one to comment. He says, “Liking wouldn’t have entered into it.” Then he goes on, “Your grandfather had a family to feed. He knew where his duty lay” (p. 100) The quotation develops the theme that you have to do what is best for your family over your own desires or wishes. When Uncle Nathan had to save one of the two sisters he did not pick his future wife (family duty), he put himself first. Uncle Nathan picked his true love. Uncle Nathan knew “Where his duty lay” (p. 100) but did not do the right thing. In this situation Uncle Nathan did not have the same morals as his father.
