Writing in your own words is your own version of the information and ideas expressed by someone else.
1. Understand what you are writing about
Reread the original sentence until you understand its full meaning.
2. Identify the essential information
Pick out the key words that you will need to use in your sentence for it to make sense.
3. Use synonyms to express the same meaning
