The next step in our Informational Writing has lead us to researching and finding out more on our migration subtopics. To help us when we find interesting or meaningful articles, websites, and books to aid our research, we took two days to really dive into quotes, paraphrasing, and summarizing as 3 tools to avoid plagiarism and give credit to the hard work of others. More specifically, we broke down paraphrasing into 3 steps and did our best to practice both orally and in our writing. It is a tough skill! They even quizzed me by reading 2 sentences from an article and had me try to paraphrase it into one! Hopefully we can plant some strong researching skills to help them navigate and learn effectively and efficiently around a topic of choice!
