User: everything! i need to know when to use paraphrasing or summarizing properly in an academic paper? weegy

Weegy: Paraphrase when you want to say all the details but there is nothing special about the person you are quoting or the way they said it. [ How can I do a correct paraphrase? Paraphrasing is tricky because you don’t want to plagiarize the source by coming to close to it in your re-write.You must keep the original meaning but use different vocabulary and a different sentence structure. The best way to do a paraphrase is: Read the passage carefully several times until you feel you understand what it is saying. Without looking at the passage, write your own version of it, using your own vocabulary and way of phrasing. Next, look back at the original and tweak your version to make sure it isn’t copying but does say the same thing. Remember, the paraphrase should sound like your own writing, not the source you are quoting. If your course uses Turnitin.com and your professor allows you to upload and look at your own papers, this is a wonderful way to see if your paper has too many words that are the same as your source. Do I have to change every word in a paraphrase? No, if there are key words or special vocabulary in this subject, you can keep those in your paraphrase.Also, if there is one unique phrase you want to include, just use quotation marks around it. source: virginialynne.hubpages.com › ... › How to Improve Your Writing ]
