We’ll look at samples of accurate and fair paraphrase, and discuss strategies for avoiding inadvertent plagiarism of sources. In an interactive exercise, we’ll also practice the art of concise summary —which entails differentiating between primary and secondary points—while looking at stand-up comedy clips.
