ENGL 102: Summary
Write a 300-400 word summary of one of the following sources:
Rough draft: Monday, September 21 (11:59 P.M.)
Peer Review: Wednesday, September 23 (11:59 P.M.)
Final Draft: Monday, September 28 (11:59 P.M.)
All drafts must be typed, double-spaced, with 1-inch margins on all sides. Use a standard font and add an MLA heading. You must also include a Works Cited page. You are required to turn in a draft and receive a peer or tutor review before I will grade the final draft.
To Prepare for This:
• Start by reading this information about writing summaries: http://content.nroc.org/DevelopmentalEnglish/unit02/Foundations/writing-a-summary.html
After Choosing your Source, follow these Four Steps:
Step 1: Identify the main idea of the reading. Create the main idea statement from what you have read.
Step 2: Identify the supporting details of the reading. Note that it is important to maintain the order of these points.
Step 3: Identify the author’s purpose for writing. Do this by asking yourself, “Why did the author write this? What did the author want me to know, think, or do after reading this?”
Step 4: Write a summary of the reading. Bring Steps 1, 2, and 3 together. The following is one way you could do this:
Part 1 Introduce the reading, stating the title and the author’s name. You should also state the author’s main idea. This may be as simple as adding the title and author to your main idea statement from Step 1.
Part 2: Write a sentence describing the supporting points you noted in Step 2 in order. You may need to write more than one sentence if the reading is long or has several supporting points.
Part 3: Write a sentence that brings this information together and states the author’s reason for writing that you noted in Step 3.
I will consider the following when grading your summary:
Is it accurate and fair?
Is it objective?
Does it avoid plagiarism?
Is it grammatically correct?
Is it in MLA format?
Did you use signal phrases?
Did you include the works cited page?
Did you include in-text citations if necessary? For more information on the Draft, Document read this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft_document
