Plagiarism is not only copying directly the words or phrases of another author. It also includes using another author’s form-- the structure of their sentences, paragraphs, or wording.
Changing keywords, switching sentences around, or changing tenses still constitutes plagiarism if not cited appropriately.
Ask yourself: Do my ideas or writing draw upon the intellectual ideas or writings of another person?

Give credit where credit is due!
