A Friendly Reminder on How to Properly Paraphrase:

When using databases and websites to conduct research, you need to remember that you are borrowing someone else's ideas to prove your point.


In order to avoid plagarizing, you need to remember to either cite the fact you are directly taking from the source OR paraphrase the fact you think is important. 


NEVER copy information word-for-word. 

If you didn't know the information before looking it up online, CITE IT!

 


 

Below is an example of how to approach paraphrasing original text. 

Please try your best or ask if you are unsure! Honesty is the BEST policy when researching!
