Which statement is true about summarizing and paraphrasing? Summarizing entails expressing the same information in an original way and paraphrasing entails demonstrating understanding of the information. Summarizing entails providing the main ideas and supporting details and paraphrasing entails restating the main ideas and details in one’s own words. Summarizing includes making judgments about the accuracy of a text and paraphrasing entails considering a source’s details and essential features.
