PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

PARAPHRASING In this world where copying and pasting is easier than ever, it is SO important that students at the upper levels learn how to paraphrase accurately.

This paraphrasing PowerPoint presentation and set of scaffolded exercises can improve your students' paraphrasing skills. This is geared toward students at the middle to high school level and has a specific focus on NONFICTION.

To use the resources, begin by talking students through the PowerPoint presentation on paraphrasing. There is an accompanying handout that you can give to students so they can focus on what you are saying instead of on taking notes. The PowerPoint comes in a PPT file that you can edit and a PDF file so there aren't format issues.

Then, students move on to practice the sure-fire paraphrasing strategy that I recommend in the PowerPoint.

After they have practiced paraphrasing the sentences, they can work on practicing how to paraphrase paragraphs.

When they are able to paraphrase paragraphs, have them move on to paraphrasing longer texts. There are four worksheets for students to use to do this. Each has a suggested research question that gives students a purpose for paraphrasing. You can do one for the students, have them complete one page together, use one page for independent practice, and use one for an assessment.

Use the resources in any way that best meets your students' skill level.

Included:
-a How-To PowerPoint presentation
-a page of notes to accompany the PPT presentation
-a paraphrasing sentences worksheet with 8 practice sentences
-a paraphrasing paragraphs worksheet with 2 exercises
-4 paraphrasing multiple paragraphs worksheets

Each worksheet comes in an editable WORD file and a PDF file.

The passages all come from real articles for an authentic experience.
