summarize, Paraphrase, and Quote Peers’ Posts

As we all may not know, it is extremely important to know how to quote people of saying's you have used, to be able to summarize a book, or even paraphrase it. A quote would be needed to give a writer and communicator his or her credit for what they have said. Otherwise it would be considered plagiarism if you didn't. A summary comes important when a friend asks you about a movie you just saw and what it was about. Some may not have time for a full summary so they can just give you the main ideas of the movie with a paraphrase. This may sound the introduction to my lesson but this is it! It is this simple! To summarize is to restate the story, a paraphrase is the restating of main ideas, and a quote is something said by someone else. Just go over this a couple times and I'm sure you will get the hang of this!
