Article citation example

Part 2 of Assignment: Describe the source in 3 sentences. 

Paraphrasing is a key skill for this!

  • Putting an author's writing into your own words AND structure with the intention of adding clarity and/or demonstrating understanding.
  • Giving credit to an author's idea (e.g., sentence, paragraph, chapter or article) 
  • Not just rewording. Not just reordering. BOTH + some insight.

Paraphrases should include the following information

Author, date, page #  
(Moss, 2013, p.131)
Author, date  
(Moss, 2013)

OR

** Although APA does not require page #s for paraphrases, it is good practice to include page #s when it is possible. Ask your instructors.

"The death of a Christian or group of Christians might be unjust, but it is not persecution as it has traditionally been defined"(Moss,2013,p.162).

Quote:

Paraphrasing example

"The death of a Christian or group of Christians might be unjust, but it is not persecution as it has traditionally been defined"(Moss,2013,p.162).

Quote:

Moss argues that we have to re-evaluate the standard understanding of the Christian persecution (2013,p.162). While Christians may have been maltreated,this does not mean they were technically persecuted (Moss,2013,p.162).
