2-Set the original aside, and write your paraphrase on a note card.
5- Use quotation marks to identify any unique term or phraseology you have borrowed exactly from the source.

6- Record the source (including the page) on your note card so that you can credit it easily if you decide to incorporate the material into your paper.
