Reading and Summarizing Understanding Academic  Reading Material
What Is Summarizing? Summarizing is how we take larger selections of text and reduce them to their bare essentials: the gist, the key ideas, the main points that are worth noting and remembering.
What Is Summarizing? It is simply making a reading material shorter by mentioning only what is important.
What do we Do When We Summarize? We remove the extra words and examples and we only focus on the heart of the matter- only what is important.
What do we Do When We Summarize? We try to find the key words and phrases that, when uttered later, still manage to capture the gist of what we've read.
What do we Do When We Summarize? We are trying to capture the main ideas and the importantdetails necessary for supporting them.
Common mistakes in summarizing Writing down everything Writing down next to nothing Writing complete sentences Writing way too much Not write enough Copying word for word
What should be done? Pull out main ideas Focus on key details Use key words and phrases Break down the larger ideas Write only enough to convey the gist Take short but complete notes
Summarizing Go with the newspaper mantra: use the key words or phrases to identify only  Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How.
Let us practice!
