Paraphrasing is very important.  You have to be able to take someone else's words and make them your own.  The key is that if you paraphrase an idea, you still need to properly site it to give credit to the author.  Just because you are rewriting the words does not make it your idea.

If that is what you need, we will of course need to see the article.  The way this discussion looks right now, there is no article that is visible.  That means we can't help you paraphrase it.  Can you post it?

Your instructor should have given you some specific guidelines on how to cite the sources that you use. Even teachers usually have to refer back to the rules from time to time. Just make sure that you don't make the mistake of changing a few words without giving proper credit to the person who originally expresses the idea. One good way to practice paraphrasing is to read the passage a couple of times and then explain what it means to someone else, or pretend that you are explaining it to someone else. Don't try to memorize the words, just describe the concept.
