Summary of a Research Article
« on: December 05, 2009, 06:46:44 PM »
This is a lesson I created to introduce students to summarizing a research article.  The lesson and article are attached, but when I gave students the article, I copied it so that students could not see the abstract or the implications section.  Often students will just use the abstract to write the summary, which is why I used white out to "blank" out the abstract section.  Also, the implications section has a lot of good ideas for writing a reaction/reflection, so I also "blanked" out that section, so students would not be tempted to just copy what the authors said when writing their reactions to the article.
