As we grow as a reader and writer, we will often be required to take the words of others and present them in our own words. This can be used to present evidence or the work of others. This process is called paraphrasing. This is a flagship academic skill. Some people can do it so well that they can take someone else’s words and throw language gasoline on them to make them better than we ever thought. Some writers are not as imaginative, and they use the words of others directly. This is called a quote and is often accompanied with quotation marks. These worksheets will help students learn to paraphrase and use quotes in their own work.
