Remember that a paraphrase needs to show your own ideas, not just someone else's ideas in a slightly different wording from the original. You are presenting your own ideas based upon sources, not merely reporting those sources.
Take notes carefully, noting page numbers and placing quotation marks around words that you copy from the original. Use only exceptional words or phrases quoted in this way.
