1. How well does it relate to your research topic or thesis statement? Does it directly relate or is it merely tangential?
2. Minimize quoting in any paper. Quote only information that is worded so succinctly that you could not improve it. Putting the information in your own words will indicate that you understand the material — and it will help you remember the material.
Using paraphasing or summarizing is related to how much the material relates to your thesis statement and how many words were assigned in the paper.
