  • Paraphrasing
    Text from Source A:
    “Japan assumed itself safe from air threats because land-based U.S. Army aircraft couldn’t reach the homeland from Hawaii or Midway” (Source A).
    Because U.S. aircraft were grounded Japan thought air attacks weren’t likely (Source A).
    • When you have text that you paraphrase, follow these steps:
    • Read the quote, then put the quote in your own words.
    • Do not just choose a few words to change!!
    • Attribute the source directly after the quoted text.
  • Paraphrasing
    Original Paragraph from Source D
    “The General Assembly should act to allow judges to impose capital punishment without requiring all 12 jurors to agree on death. All 12 should agree on guilt, but the penalty phase should be a simple recommendation to the judge who could impose the appropriate penalty”.
    The state government should make a law so that judges can decide the death penalty without 12 jurors agreeing. The jurors should all agree the criminal is guilty, but the final punishment should be left up to the judge (Source D).
    • Read the text to the right.
    • Then read the sample paraphrase below.
    • Is this is a good example of paraphrasing?

    “The General Assembly should act to allow judges to impose capital punishment without requiring all 12 jurors to agree on death. All 12 should agree on guilt, but the penalty phase should be a simple recommendation to the judge who could impose the appropriate penalty”.
    Laws should be changed so that once jurors have unanimously determined a person’s guilt, the decision to charge capital punishment should be determined by the judge, not the jury (Source D).

    • Use transitional terms such as: According to, furthermore, etc.
    • Use action verbs such as: stated, defended, argued, etc.
    Why isn’t this necessary?
