6 Steps to Effective Paraphrasing

  • Reread the original passage until you understand its full meaning.

  • Set the original aside, and write your paraphrase on a note card.

  • Jot down a few words below your paraphrase to remind you later how you envision using this material. At the top of the note card, write a key word or phrase to indicate the subject of your paraphrase.

  • Double check your interpretationwith the original to make sure that your version accurately expresses all the important information in a new form.

  • Use quotation marks if necessaryto identify any unique term or phraseology you have borrowed exactly from the source.

  • Record the source (including the page) on your note card so that you can credit it easily if you decide to incorporate the material into your paper.

  • In Mrs. Gehrt’s class you will fail the assignment if you plagiarize.

Using quotes continued

Using Quotes Continued…

  • In the novel, Of Mice and Men, George says, “’Lennie, for God’ sakes don’t drink so much.’” (Steinbeck 3). This is a great example of how George takes care of Lennie, like a father would take care of his son. George says, “’Lennie. You gonna be sick like you was last night.’” (Steinbeck 3). George is aware that Lennie is not thinking about how the water could make him sick.
