The Art of Writing Effectives Summaries
« on: March 28, 2012, 12:15:36 PM »
Writing a good summary is a very important skill, not only in the academic world, but also in the workplace.

In this power point presentation I review the process one should follow to produce a summary. The teacher can use the presentation to discuss the different aspects of the process and the the useful tips students should take in consideration for this type of writing.

After the presentation, I would give the class a short article, have everyone read it,  and guide students through the process of writing the article's summary.

Because "practice makes the master," it is important that students practice writing summaries. Just knowing about it or looking at the teacher doing an example is not enough; to acquire the ability they must summarize as much as possible.
