Creating a citation within a reading response follows the same conventions as any citation within an essay. Placing a direct quotation or a paraphrase makes a reading response inherently stronger; not only does the quotation prove you have completed the reading assignment, but it also adds legitimacy to your analysis of the text. Knowing how to properly create a citation for a reading response is important for developing writing skills. Quote or paraphrase the material you plan to cite. Begin the quote with a single quotation mark, type the text, then close with a second quotation.
