Paraphrase unit
« on: May 01, 2010, 03:04:54 PM »
I think the handouts are more geared towards graduate ESL students.

NOTE: I think a lesson on plagiarism and summary is needed before implementing the handouts.

Then, I hand out a short exercise on what they think is considered an "acceptable" form of paraphrasing from the second handout. I put students into pairs and ask them to work on the exercises. Afterwards, there is short class discussion on the answers. I've noticed that even graduate students get a bit confused as to what is considered an appropriate paraphrase.

Afterwards, I use the power point to give techniques on how to write an effective paraphrase.

Finally, a paraphrase exercise is provided. I put students into pairs for this activity because the exercises can be a bit challenging. The directions are on the handout.
