A summary is always shorter than the original o 2. A summary is primarily in your own words, paraphrased o 3. Occasionally you may use a short fragment quotation of 1-4 words, if and only if you can’t paraphrase a phrase o 4. The first line of the summary should be a statement of the original articles; thesis, main argument o 5. After the thesis statement, give main supporting ideas in the exact same order, or close to the exact same order that they occurred in the original o 6. Can delete repetitions, extreme detail and off-topic points throughout the piece o 7. Sometimes you need to keep certain details in order for it to make sense to someone who hasn’t read the original article. o 8. As you are writing the summary, you will be tempted to add in your own ideas but do NOT add in your own commentary or arguments. o 9. The original ending is your ending, end with their conclusion, not your own thoughts o 10. Include a works cited entry for the original article.
