      Direct Quote
      Paraphrase

    • 4. Quotations
      Only use a direct quotation when you have a good reason to. Quotations may be writing tools for the lazy.

      Use only a small bit of the original
      Match the source word for word
      Be attributed to the original author (including page #)

      Shorter than the original
      Usually condenses information slightly

      Use quotation marks to identify any unique term or borrowed exactly from the source
      Record the source (including the page) on your notes so that you can credit it easily if you decide to incorporate the material into your paper.
    • 10. Still having trouble?
      Change the sentence structure and then the words, or vice versa.
      Break-up long sentences
      Combine shorter sentences
      Work on understanding the original passage as a whole idea.
      Don’t paraphrase unnecessary material.
      You can use direct quotations in a paraphrase as long as you cite them accordingly.
      You do not have to omit details (like a summary).
    • 11. In your paraphrase
      Always cite the original source
      Include page numbers or other identifying information when available
    • 12. Summarizing
      Summaries are significantly shorter than the original and take a broad overview of the source material.
    • 13. Summarizing
      Put the main idea(s) into your own words
      include only the main point(s).
      attribute summarized ideas to the original source
    • 14. Parenthetical citation
      Citation in the body of your writing
      In MLA style, it includes the author’s last name and the page number
      If there is no page number, you obviously cannot give the page number.
