February 23: Leading EAP learners from paraphrasing to “power-phrasing”
Developing writers sometimes avoid paraphrasing because it is more challenging than quoting and because they are afraid of committing plagiarism. When EAP educators focus on the ways in which paraphrasing gives the writer agency, when they take care to progress from decontextualized activities towards activities where context is central, and when they link paraphrasing to the positive values of academic integrity rather than the negative consequences of plagiarism, writers may begin to see paraphrasing as “power-phrasing.”
Please join the Calgary Local for a presentation by Silvia Rossi from on February 23 from 6:00 to 7:30 PM.
