Use your own words (project paraphrasing)

Subjects: Writing, Reading, Science

Student Instructions

To prepare for your project video, you will paraphrase the information that you must present in your project video "Paraphrasing helps students make connections with prior knowledge, demonstrate comprehension, and remember what they have read. Through careful explanation and thorough modeling by the teacher in this lesson, students learn to use paraphrasing to monitor their comprehension and acquire new information. They also realize that if they cannot paraphrase after reading, they need to go back and reread to clarify information."
