Paraphrasing & Quoting

Quoting an paraphrasing in APA

Part I: Quoting & Paraphrasing

Instructions: Let's practice writing an in-text quotation and paraphrasing a source. There's a couple of ways to do this. Use the paper your librarian provided you and create one example of both quoting and paraphrasing.

This is the article you will be quoting and paraphrasing from:

APA-style citation: Roberts, S. (2017). 'If I Hadn't Gotten Fired From Salomon ...'. The New York Times. p. 9. Retrieved from: Science in Context, link.galegroup.com/apps/doc/A480070999/SCIC?u=txshracd2603&xid=6af15821

 

Part II: Paraphrasing

Instructions: Let’s practice borrowing the “main idea” of a text.

Using Brainy Quote .Com, or other website, find a favorite quote online and re-write it “in your own words.” Then write a sentence to describe what it means to you. Share this with a partner. Does it make sense? Does it alter the meaning of the original? Is it too much like the original?
