Paraphrase: Write it in Your Own Words
April 10, 2002
To paraphrase, according to Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary
is a "a restatement of a text, passage, or work giving the meaning
in another form."
In light of the recent plagiary scandals at Simon Fraser University
and BCIT, it is important for any student to learn how to effectively
restate material without plagiarizing.
This week, we will be using a worksheet from the Owl Online Writing
Lab in order to learn more about and practice this essential skill.
Students will work together to paraphrase a number of passages. Their
results will be posted as an example for students to follow.
