  • while maintaining the meaning of the original.

Q. What steps should you follow in both Paraphrasing and Summarizing activities?

  • Read the original text for a cursory reading. The second reading can be specific and close, looking for better understanding of the text. 
  • You can underline the main thoughts. Also mark the supporting arguments.
  • Make note of the important points. While making notes try not to copy words from the original until there is no substitute for them.
  • Now keep aside the original matter and write on all the important points of the original in your own language
  • Compare your version with the original to see whether all important points have been included.
  • If you find any unique word in the original which you wish to retain, then you can also use it in quotes to show the borrowing from the original.
