Avoiding Plagiarism: Quoting
A process where you use someone else's sentences exactly as they wrote or spoke them. You must attribute these directly to the original speaker or writer.
Avoiding Plagiarism: Paraphrasing
Complete this process by taking someone else's original idea and restating it using your own words and with a different sentence structure. You must credit the original creator.
Avoiding Plagiarism: Summarizing
This process is similar to paraphrasing, but provides a briefer look at the source's information. To do this, you condense facts from a source while properly crediting the original creator.
