Transcript

  • 1. Principles of an Academic SummaryThanks to Dr. Zerwin of Fairview High for these tips!
  • 2. An academic summary should: Summarize key ideas, as opposed to specific events
  • 3. An academic summary should: State the name of the author and the title of his/her work early in the summary.
  • 4. An academic summary should: Use author tags throughout to clearly establish that you are referring to the author’s ideas (as opposed to your own. Example: “McCarthy suggests that…” or “Botstein argues that…” or “According to Nehrenberg…”
  • 5. An academic summary should: Remain objective throughout.
  • 6. An academic summary should: Be written in your own words (except for example given on next slide!)
  • 7. An academic summary should: Use brief quotes, where appropriate (a well-stated phrase that refers to the text’s main point, key words or phrases that you might refer to frequently). Don’t just drop in a quote – be sure to introduce and analyze!
