Question description

Learning to paraphrase appropriately and distinguish the difference when compared to plagiarism

There are many questions regarding paraphrasing. As you are now writing graduate-level papers, it is important that you understand how to paraphrase correctly. 

Please paraphrase the two sample sentences below. Cite the sample sentences properly in APA 6th edition format.

Sample One: “In addition to making sure a quotation is not taken out of context or misused, it is essential to properly give credit to the author of the quote by using an appropriate citation method” (Martinez et al., 2008, p. 84).

Sample Two: “Online learners must dedicate uninterrupted time to their studies because the idea that learning takes concentration has not changed simply because the medium for delivering education has” (Martinez, 2009, p. 3).

Next, select a paragraph from one of your journal articles chosen from DQ.docx, write out the original text, and then below that, paraphrase it.

Explain the following questions within the conclusion of your discussion:

  1. What did you learn about the difference between paraphrasing and plagiarism?
  2. What did you find most difficult about completing these exercises?
