Not necessarily, but any part of the original text that you include in your paraphrased text should be in quotation marks.

Phrases to start a text
To write is to give order and coherence through writing to what we say or think. Therefore, to write is to put on paper what we think or say, but also, to write is to reflect.
The process of writing begins at the very moment we start to think about what we will write, that is, when the idea appears in our minds, because when we start to think about what we want to communicate, we make a mental image of what we want to say, to whom and why. We do all this unconsciously, but it is being aware of it that will help us to write better.
The first thing we have to take into account when we want to write is these three things: what role the writer is playing, to whom we are writing, and what effect the writing should have on the person to whom it is addressed.
But the writer’s point of view and his or her objectives are only one aspect of the question. The other important point is the addressee. It is important to achieve the desired effect by considering the point of view and attitude of the addressee. This is who will determine what we will say and how we will say it. Writing for someone who already knows what I am writing about is not the same as writing for someone who has no idea what I am talking about: in the latter case, we cannot forget information that in the former case we would ignore because the reader is already familiar with the subject.
