Q. What's the differences among quoting, paraphrasing, and summarizing?


Quoting is where you take the exact words from another source and copy them into your paper.  A quotation will be surrounded with "quotation marks" to indicate that it is a quote.
Paraphrasing is where you take the ideas, facts, and figures from another source and use them in your paper.  You will take a passage from another source and include it in your work in your own words.
Summarizing is when you note the main points of a source in your own words.  You are providing the reader a very brief synopsis of the work.
*Please Note: These still require in-text and bibliographic attribution in the form of MLA, APA, or other style citations.
