Paraphrasing and List of References
In the previous three milestones, you found and evaluated your sources for the Final Project. Now, in milestone 4, you will practice the skill of paraphrasing to learn how to use a source appropriately as evidence to support your argument, without using its language verbatim. Then, you will practice putting all of your sources into proper APA format for a reference list.
Step 1: Paraphrasing Activity
Pick a key passage from one of your Final Project sources. The passage should be relevant to your topic and thesis statement, something that you will be likely to use as evidence when you write your final paper. The passage you choose should also be at least 5 sentences long. Next, copy/paste this passage into the Template, place it inside quotation marks.
Then, below your quoted passage, paraphrase the material in your own words and then include an in-text citation of the source at the end of your paragraph. Your paraphrase should be at least 2-3 sentences.
Paraphrasing is more than just replacing individual words here and there. Be careful about relying on the thesaurus. The goal is to put the idea fully in your own words by changing the structure, voice, and significantly changing the wording in order to differentiate it from the original. If you find this difficult to do with the source in front of you, try reading the source and then putting it out of sight. Then reword it from memory and your understanding of the passage. Understanding correct paraphrasing is important because if you paraphrase incorrectly by only replacing words sporadically or keeping the original wording without putting it inside quotes, it is considered a form of academic dishonesty.
Step 2: Reference List in APA Format
Next, you will create a reference list for your Final Project using your five sources. Each source must be in proper APA format (pay close attention to the details like italics, commas, periods, and capitalization). In addition, make sure to properly format the reference list itself (pay close attention to your spacing, indentation, and alphabetization). No detail is too small for this exercise! Note: even when not required per APA, all sources should also include a URL or DOI listed at the end of your citation for your instructor to review.
Below is a word dox with some info on APA and paraphrasing.
As we all, I included the Milestone templete to edit and work from the other milestone 4 paper I sent. I also including the other milestone.
This is Milestone 4 and it was previously done by me but the top section isnt a quote but a summary of one of the sources so please find a qyoute from the sources I provided and then paraphrase it.
Also I sent milestone 3, so please rewrite the thesis as instructed in it.
I write simple so can you write them both properly with simple terminology.
