Paraphrasing: What it is and How to Do it
Paraphrasing is a way of expressing someone else's ideas and thoughts in your own words. When paraphrasing, you must keep the same meaning as the original content but use different words and sentence structure. To paraphrase, read the content carefully and then rewrite it in your own words without looking at the original source.
