  • 1. Part II:Practice, Practice and some pointers
  • 2. Re-cap  What are the four steps to carry out summary writing?  Step 1: Read the question…apply the qn template:  Intro., Basic Instr., Restrictions, Length, Start  Step 2: Re-read passage and mark out relevant bits from the passage  Step 3: Make brief notes in your own words  Step 4: Write-up your notes in complete sentences
  • 3. Review areas for improvement  Based on your feedback and the short assessment we did…here’s what we have learnt:  Always check back to the Topic…when selecting pts.  Re-phrase or paraphrase…but choose shorter expressions  Turn clauses or phrases into words…e.g.”…the art of being specific” can be replaced by: “specificity”
  • 4. Some tips (your own words)  Successful summary writing is based on the ability to use your own words. Here are some tips:  Read the line, sentence, etc. again and try out different words with the same meaning (synonyms)…  Replace the words found in the passage with your own synonyms
  • 5. Some tips (re-phrasing)  Apart from using your own words, summary writing tests how economical you are in the use of English. Here are some tips:  Re-phrase: remove additional adjectives and clauses from your expression…let the main point be clearly expressed.  Be succinct (to the point)…reduce and rephrase but still keep meaning of main point
  • 6. In Class Practice  Let’s try out the summary question in Exercise 1…(total time: 35 mins)  Remember the qn. template (or just the key headings)  Remember the steps (4 steps)  Remember to replace and rephrase  Begin reading for meaning and searching for main points
  • 7. Model Answer  Lets review the model answer…  Jot down the areas where you had missed out points  A copy of the model answer given to you.
  • 8. Key points…take-a-ways  Recall the following:  Steps to summary writing:  Use your own words: Replace  Use your own expression: Re-phrase  Check for spelling and grammar…don’t forget the small stuff
