12th Grade: Paraphrasing

Paraphrasing-express the meaning of a writer, speaker, another person using different words.

When Paraphrasing you must still use a Parenthetical Citation to give the author credit.

*In your research paper you must use paraphrasing at least twice*

In your outline, be sure to include some information using paraphrasing.

By the end of the day, your outline should have:

  • Your thesis statement
  • At least 4 topic sentences (these are the topics for your body paragraphs)
  • A quote from your articles to support each of your topic sentences (make sure you include a parenthetical citation)
  • 2 paraphrases of information from your articles in any of your topic sentences
