ENGL 1301 K. Sanders Cheat Notes for Using Resources: Summarizing : Summarize a source’s argument to represent an opposing or alternative point of view or when it advances one of your own points. Paraphrasing : Translate a short passage from a source’s words into your own words. Paraphrase when you are using brief, specific information from a source and don’t want to interrupt the flow of your own voice with quotations. -Avoid the original author’s grammatical structure and syntax. You don’t want to plagiarize. Ex. of how to cite : According to McGrath, women in Bodie seldom suffered at the hands of criminals. Between 1878 and 1882, the only female robbery victim in Bodie was a prostitute. Also rape seemed nonexistent, with no reported cases and no evidence that unreported cases occurred (McGrath 645). Direct Quotations : -Copy passage EXACTLY, including punctuation. -Use to give flavor of author’s language, especially if striking. -Use quotes from respected authority to support your points.
