  • Reword - replace words and phrases with synonyms whenever you can.

  • Recheck - make sure that your paraphrase conveys the same meaning as the original text.

  • Realize – that some words and phrases cannot be changed – names, dates, titles etc. cannot be replaced, but you can present them differently in your paraphrase.
