  1. Choose two (2) compound or complex sentences from each article and paraphrase them, including a signal phrase and a correct APA style in-text citation. You will have a total of 6 paraphrases (2 paraphrases x 3 articles). Include both the original sentence and your paraphrase.

Example:

Original sentence: “Smaller, niche retailers are also expanding their ability to offer richer and more personalized experiences tailored to shoppers in their local market.”

Paraphrase: Thomson (2017) states that independent retailers are enhancing their stores to provide local shoppers with an experience that reflects their needs and tastes (para. 4).

Note: Students who submit paraphrased sentences that are not compound or complex sentences will receive a grade of zero on those submissions

Part 2: Summarizing the Point (9 marks)

For each of the three articles, write a one or two-sentence summary.

Example: This is a single sentence summary of an article “Food Waste Sustainability” which originally appeared in the Wanganui Chronicle on March 17, 2020.

Stewart, G. (2020, Mar 17). Food waste food waste sustainability. Wanganui Chronicle. https://ra.ocls.ca/ra/login.aspx?inst=centennial&url=https://proquest.com/newspapers/food-waste-sustainability/docview/2379497154/se-2?accountid=39331

In the article “Food Waste Sustainability,” Stewart (2020) explains that almost 30% of food produced in the world is wasted. He suggests that individuals and organizations can do much to reduce the amount of wastage.

Part 3: References Page (12 marks)

To complete Part 3, create a References list for the three articles read for this assignment. The References list should be on a separate page than Part 1. Ensure that you use correct spacing, formatting, and capitalization.
