Paraphrasing is a SKILL
  • Your paraphrase should be focused concisely on
    the details from the text that will help connect
    your textual evidence to your topic sentence.
  • Change both the vocabulary and the sentence
    structure to free yourself from the authors
    voice, and give the analysis your own (writers)
    voice.

Paraphrasing is a reading SKILL
  • Read the passage carefully
  • Decide what information will support your topic
    sentence and thesis statement/claim

    phrases

    own words

7th Grade Lets Practice!
excerpt from Always Wanting More by Thomas
Hine Nevertheless, we yawn at a super store
rather than marvel at it. That such a store
could provoke such apathy instead of amazement is
a perverse tribute to the plentitude of our
consumer society and the weakness of the
emotional ties that bind us to the many objects
in our lives. Never before has so much seemed so
dull.

The author concludes this section of his book by
restating that Americans live in an apathetic
world full of an abundance of possessions. And
it is in this world that we are bored instead of
grateful for all that we have, with no emotional
ties to our possessions.

worries about her appearance and boys. She
questions life and feels as if no one will listen
to her.
