Module 6: Paraphrasing vs. Plagiarism

Harvard Graduate School of Education:  Paraphrasing Presentation

You must give credit to the author:  quoting, summarizing and paraphrasing.

Beware of Wikipedia references!


Use block formatting for quotes 40 words or more.  Note the page reference at the end of the quote and the reference (dating especially for newspapers).


I get brackets when adding words and ellipses, nothing new there.


Summary for Quoting, Summarizing & Paraphrasing, a concise way to represent the salient differences between them all.


Sent mail to Cynthia Strong (and bcc David Wicks) asking about a site licensed Bibliographic software for SPU that students can use.  It seems reasonable that if you want Graduate Students to start being professional in their tracking and use of references to provide a tool to do so.  No?


I am challenged by this training to be more concise in my paraphrasing, and to renew my vigilance to cite my sources more accurately and consistently.
