The main idea of the exercise is to guide the student step by step from reading a paragraph to writing a paraphrase in own words. Directing questions assist this process. It is based on Paraphrase practice 1 (English Language Teaching) and provides additional examples.

The exercise can be used in any context of teaching students to work with secondary literature and work with it properly. Poor academic writing skills may cause plagiarism and this exercise helps to foster the prevention of plagiarism in a positive way by practising in-text citations skills although the term plagiarism isn’t even mentioned.

The exercise is taken form Salim Razi’s book “Advanced Reading and Writing Skills in ELT” (Razi, S. (2011). Advanced Reading and Writing Skills in ELT. APA Style Handbook, Ankara: Nobel, p. 184-186.) and it is designed for students in an English Language Teaching programme. The exercise is provided as an example and the given original text can and should easily be replaced with a text which fits into the context of your subject matter.
