Research and Study Skills
When you paraphrase, you use someone else's ideas or information, but you put it in your own words.

You often paraphrase when you look at sources to gather information for a report.

Paraphrased notes may include key words, phrases, or sentences in your own words.
Copying someone else's ideas and presenting them as your own is called plagiarism.

Plagiarism is the same as stealing someone else's work.
What is paraphrasing?

Why is it important to paraphrase rather than plagiarize?

In what kind of situation do we often use paraphrasing?
