The Christmas decorations and lights are already up throughout Tokyo. I always love the Christmas season in Tokyo.
At the beginning of class, we reviewed some of the key terms we've studied in class over the past two weeks: in-text citation, plagiarism, paraphrasing and shared language.
We also reviewed how to make an in-text citation for a second-hand quote and how to paraphrase.
For the last part of our lesson, we learned how to summarize. This is similar to paraphrasing in that you use your own words, but you only include the main ideas from a passage. Remember to include an in-text citation for both paraphrases and summaries. However, if you are paraphrasing and/or summarizing general facts, you do not need an in-text citation.
The steps for paraphrasing and summarizing are on the lesson handouts, which you can download from the website in the Writing --> Research Essay section.
