A paraphrase is where you take information, ideas, and facts from another source and present them in your paper in your own words. Don't copy and paste the sentences and then change a couple of the words.
Below are examples of incorrect and correct paraphrases. The in-text citations are in MLA style. For more examples please click on the video or Purdue OWL links below.
