This helps students understand how to summarize, paraphrase, and direct quote their sources within their essay. There is an accompanying powerpoint to review as a class before working on this assignment. Before doing this assignment students should have a working knowledge of citations and in-text citations.
I have created citations for articles I found for a sample research paper about cell phones in school. Students are given the citation and a paragraph from the source, and they are required to paraphrase, summarize, and direct quote the source. Since they are given the works cited page citation, they are also required to include the in-text citation.
PLEASE SEE THE ACCOMPANYING POWERPOINT. It reviews how to incorporate summaries, paraphrases, and direct quotes.
