C. An example of a poor paraphrase

Compare the original quote with this poorly-written paraphrase:

Take note of these mistakes!

  • The paraphrase has a very similar sentence structure to the original quote; it essentially has a few different words from the original quote and does not flow well.
  • The term “civic hub” is not in quotes (it should be, as it is a unique phrase used in the original quote).
  • There is no citation crediting the source of the idea.
