What’s the difference?
Quoting
Quotations must be exactly like
the original.
You must give credit to the
original author.
  Example of Quotes


“I have a dream”

  --Martin Luther King
Paraphrasing
Paraphrasing is putting a
section from the original
material into your own words.
You must cite the original material
here also.
Paraphrased material is shorter
 than the original passage.

It takes an overview of the whole
  topic.
Could you paraphrase the
whole Harry Potter series?
NO
You could paraphrase one scene though.

Practice paraphrasing the scene where
Harry buys his first wand.
    Example of Paraphrasing
Pretend Article from the AJC:

All the teachers at Lilburn Elementary will be attending a
lecture on Thursday at the University of Georgia. The
famous author, J. K. Rowling will be speaking to the
elementary teachers and staff. The lecture will conclude
with an autograph session and a reception in the
auditorium. This conference will be sponsored by The
Steven Spielberg Council for Under Appreciated School
Librarians, and each librarian attending will receive the
entire set of novels by J. K. Rowling, including a preview
of her new book, Mystery in the Under Staffed Media
Center.
          Paraphrase:
The author of Harry Potter will
speak to the Lilburn Elementary
teachers and staff on Thursday.
They will also attend a reception
immediately afterward.

Summarizing
Summarizing involves putting the
main idea into your own words.
Summaries are much
shorter than the original
and take an overview of
the material.
  You can summarize
    a whole book!

A whole series of books!
     What is the Harry Potter
         series about?


The series is about a boy who discovers he is a
wizard, then goes to wizard school for seven
years where he must battle an evil character.

That is a summary of 4,175 pages!
  Let’s practice summarizing:
