Product Description
Teaching paraphrasing in the classroom is always a challenge. Plagiarism is rampant in the "copy and paste" generation. This lesson plan presents a straight-forward process to taking notes and summarizing non-fiction texts, a vital component of the research process.

This two-to-three day lesson presents the following:

- a step-by-step process for paraphrasing texts
- detailed lesson plan provided for teachers
- the difference between paraphrasing and plagiarizing with a hands-on worksheet
- short sample texts for individual and group paraphrasing practice
- a longer text for an end of unit paraphrase assignment
- a detailed rubric for final assignment
- answer key with paraphrased text

This step-by-step process has been used successfully in my own and my colleagues' classrooms.

All the texts are copyright-free. (Please note that some of the sample texts are from essays/texts that were written in the early 1900's and while still very applicable to modern day research, they do use the less politically sensitive word of "Indian" for Native Americans. These texts were used because they can be reproduced without fear of copyright infringement.)
