Week 1 2012  Features of a summary Week 1 2012 Features of a summary Presentation Transcript

  • Features of a summary Academic Literacy MPharmacy  Semester week 1 2012 1
  • Features of a summarya) Using the same order of facts and ideas as the original. Not necessary, unless you are summarising a process that logically needs the same order as the original. In fact, you probably need to reorganise the information in order to answer your question. 2
  • Features of a summaryb) Using all the information from the original. No. The point is to choose what is relevant to your purpose. 3
  • Features of a summaryc) Using none of the same vocabulary as the original. No. Core vocabulary is essential vocabulary and must not be changed. However, the summary should be in your own words. 4
  • Features of a summaryd) Using different grammatical structures from the original. Yes. This will probably happen naturally if you rewriting from your own notes, not directly from the text. 5
  • Features of a summarye) Emphasising the points you feel are important in the original. Yes. Part of the skill of summarising is emphasising important points (without saying directly ‘I think this is important’). Knowing how to select relevant information is an essential part of summarising. 6
  • Features of a summaryf) Giving your opinion about or commenting on the original text. Definitely not within the summary. However, you might be asked to comment critically on the content of a summary as part of a task. 7
