Synthesize and Paraphrase

Synthesize and ParaphraseRC 2.4- Synthesize the content from several sources or works by a single author dealing with a single issue; paraphrase the ideas and connect them to other sources and related topics to demonstrate comprehension.Target/ ObjectiveStudents will paraphrase an article about Migrant Workers in California and synthesize the information from the article with information they already know about the Great Depression.Big IdeaTo paraphrase means to put something into your own words.To synthesize means to combine, connect, or unite with other information.ParaphrasingParaphrasing what you read, or putting it in your own words, not only demonstrates that you understand the material, it can also make it easier for you to handle information and thereby make connections.A summary is also a type of paraphrase. A summary paraphrases an entire passage or article. A good summary covers the main points of the selection and touches on important details. It does not cover every detail in a story or article, but rather gives an overall view of what the material is about.SynthesizingIn order to synthesize information, ideas, or theories from selections you read, it is helpful to think about:How things are alike and how they are differentThe causes of events and the results of actionsThe order in which events happenThe way the parts relate to the wholeParaphrasing exampleExample:It was a ghastly night, lightning ripped the sky, winds tore through tree limbs, and torrential rains beat the ground.You could paraphrase the sentence as follows:That night, there was a terrible storm.Synthesizing exampleGoing one step further and synthesizing this information, you might make the logical connection that it wasnt a good night to be outside. You might also connect this sentence and the mood it establishes to the setting of mystery stories that you have read. Or, you might combine this information with other things you have read or experiences you have had, such as your own experiences with winter storms.Practice #1Read the first paragraph of the Great Depression article.Paraphrase the information into 1-2 sentences.Synthesize the information with something else you have read or information that you know about the great depression.Practice #2Read the second paragraph of the Great Depression article.Paraphrase the information into 1-2 sentences.Synthesize the information with something else you have read or information that you know about the great depression.Practice #3Read the third paragraph of the Great Depression article.Paraphrase the information into 1-2 sentences.Synthesize the information with something else you have read or information that you know about the great depression.Practice #4Read the fourth paragraph of the Great Depression article.Paraphrase the information into 1-2 sentences.Synthesize the information with something else you have read or information that you know about the great depression.
