Description and Purpose

This SET provides a structured activity that helps students take an idea or concept and 'make it their own' by integrating it into their own words and understandings. Students paraphrase concepts that are complex or are typically conveyed using highly specialised vocabulary into simpler language that will be understood by a designated audience. The process of translating complicated language or concepts into simpler, straightforward, more personally relevant language helps students remember what they have learned longer. It also gives students practice restating their learning into a form that a specific audience can understand (for example, patients, clients, or customers), a skill that is essential for success in many professions.
