Our Paraphrasing Text and Information lesson plan teaches students strategies for accurately and concisely paraphrasing text. During this lesson, students are asked to first write a passage describing their evening at home from the time they arrived home from school until you went to sleep and then share it with a classmate; they then paraphrase each other’s passages. Students are also asked to identify the difference between paraphrasing and plagiarism by telling why a specific passage is plagiarized and then paraphrasing it themselves.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to paraphrase portions of a text read aloud or information presented in diverse media and formats, including visually, quantitatively, and orally.
