Quotation And Paraphrasing

Paraphrasing can be unsufficient actually that’s because they call it patch writing it’s a borderline of plagiarism in this case it’s too close for comfort I did not give the student an F because this was the only place in the paper Ricky did it and it was relatively minor but you will have teachers who will tell you for that level of borrowing a better approach would be to say stem cells show promise in the regeneration of body tissue right and that it’s not again it maybe doesn’t sound this good but just because it sounds better that way doesn’t mean you can use it if you do want to use it because it sounds so much better put in quotation marks all you had to do and you can do that is just put quotation marks around the part of the just put quotation marks around the part of the sentence that you can’t find another way to say.

It’s always better to quote too much lien is to plagiarize you can always figure out later come put that in your own words or whether it’s even necessary to have the sentence questions okay so let’s talk about how to avoid plagiarism this is on the website that’s website you want to write it down you can so obviously do not intentionally use other people’s work without giving credit do not purchase papers do not hire somebody to be aware of the potential for plagiarism at all stages of the process reading if you have a photographic memory note-taking especially if you’re taking notes by copying and pasting things from the web drafting you start writing and then also revising and in particular it’s at the drafting and revising stages where we’re going to be working on things you do not write while looking at your sources unless you’re trying to quote okay so if you find yourself this is one of a physical sense memory thing if you find yourself writing looking writing looking once you write something.
