I’ve had a post where I’ve been accumulating resources on teaching paraphrasing, but it wasn’t a “Best” list.
So, I’ve decided to republish it as one.
Here are the resources I have so far:
E.L.L. Practice + Prompt | The Value Of Diversity is an interactive I created for The New York Times Learning Network and includes some questions on paraphrasing.
How to Teach Summarizing, Part I is by Timothy Shanahan.
How to Teach Summarizing, Part II is by Timothy Shanahan.
Teaching the Challenging but Essential Academic Writing Skill of Paraphrasing is from EFL Magazine.
There are a fair number of AI-powered tools solely devoted to paraphrasing (though, of course, ChatGPT could do it, too). Rephrase is one of them.
ON THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PARAPHRASE & SUMMARY is from Doug Lemov.
