Note on Paraphrasing: Paraphrasing the ideas of others is a requirement in academic writing and graduate study. Paraphrasing is using your own words to restate ideas or information from a source material. As you write each annotation, use these three main steps to paraphrasing:

1. Identify the original idea(s) in the article.

2. Identify general points regarding the idea(s).

3. Summarize the general points of the article in your own words.
