I HAVE ATTACHED SEPARATE ARTICLES FOR YOU TO SUMMARIZE. THESE ARTICLES ARE IN A SEPARATE FOLDER UNDER A SEPARATE HEADING. PLEASE READ THE ARTICLE, CAREFULLY, USE DIRECT AND INDIRECT QUOTES FROM IT TO PRODUCE YOU PRECIS DOCUMENT.
Reminder on How to Construct Your Submission
A précis is a three-page, single-spaced summary using Times New Roman 12pt font. For example, if a student has a 25 page article, it can be difficult to come back to page 5 and remember what was in article, but with a summary, students can easily see and remember what they have read and how they have reacted to it (Daniels 22) .
- Pay special attention to any divisions that the author has seen fit to use, usually indicated by captions. This categorization is important to summarizing the information and maintaining the appropriate relationships among ideas.
- The level of generality and specificity is determined by the amount of information that can fit into the one-page format. For example, a 700-page book would be summarized at a greater level of generality than would a 17-page article.
- Use quotations from throughout the work: meaning, they must be sure to quote exactly, use quotation marks, and give in-text documentation in MLA.
- This will help me to distinguish between your words and those of the author of the work being summarized.
