Find a newspaper article that may be useful for your semester long project. Read the article carefully. You may begin by substituting your own words for those of the original. Think of paraphrasing as translating another writer’s words into your own words. Make sure you revise for coherence. The paraphrase should stand alone.
Your paraphrase should be approximately the same length of the original source. Choose an article that has about 5-10 thick paragraphs. Make sure your source is manageable to paraphrase. You should utilize quotation in your paraphrase.
Please provide me with a URL or photocopy of your article.
Your paraphrase should include a works cited page.
