AW Lesson 8: Summarizing
We have just one more week to go, and you'll be finished writing the most difficult part of your research paper!
At the beginning of class, we the differences between a paraphrase and a direct quote. We also reviewed the steps for how to paraphrase and then completed a paraphrasing activity.
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 Lesson Materials (Lesson 8: summarising) section.
