If the Similarity Report for your first draft shows a high percentage of matching text, review and edit your assignment for proper citation and the need to paraphrase ideas. Paraphrasing includes not just using your own words, but also explaining concepts in your own writing style that matches your explanations in the rest of your paper. Include more original analysis and comment, then submit to the draft or assignment folder again. The Effective Writing Center is an excellent resource for getting help with paraphrasing.
