Paraphrase by putting information from your sources in your own words.
Cite your information sources by giving credit whenever you use:
1) Another person’s ideas, opinions, or theories
2) Facts, statistics, graphs, drawings - any pieces of information that are not common knowledge
3) Quotations of another person's acutal spoken or written words
4) Paraphrases of another person's spoken or written words
The following resources will help you paraphrase and cite correctly:
