Summary Writing

Steps to writing an effect summary:

Avoid personal opinions or experiences and present in the order in which they are discussed.

1) First sentence – Include author’s purpose, the author’s name, and the title of the reading by using citation verbs and expressions (e.g. The author points out…; According to…).

2) Chunk the remaining ideas and include one sentence for each idea.
