Paraphrasing

Understanding how to paraphrase is an important skill for journalists to have. Here is an example of an effective paraphrasing of a quotation. You may also find more resources in the Ashford Writing Center’s Guidelines for Paraphrasing.

Example Quotation
Tom Nelson, president of the citywide Parent Teachers Association: “Our major concern this year will be security in the schools, particularly in the high schools. We will be working with school officials on ways we can help create a safer environment for the education of our children. A number of incidents in the past year have been very disturbing to many parents. We are going to try to provide a way for those parents to make a real difference in their local schools.”

Example Paraphrase
Tom Nelson, president of the Parent Teachers Association, said that the chief concern of the organization this year would be security, particularly in the high schools. Nelson said parents would be working with school officials to make the schools safer.

For this assignment, you will paraphrase the quotations in the Week Three Paraphrasing document. Be sure to write no more than half the length of the original quotation and to include most of the information in the quotation.

For the Paraphrasing Assignment, students must

  • Identify critical information in each quote.
  • Paraphrase each quote in a way that maintains the integrity of the statement.
  • Utilize AP style in the passage.

Check it! Your assignment must be submitted through Grammarly prior to submission. (Note: Grammarly does not take the place of understanding journalistic writing and AP style. Be sure that you make appropriate editorial decisions after submitting your revised article to Grammarly.)
