When writing a summary, remember that it should be in paragraph form and include an introductory paragraph with a strong, cohesive thesis statement, body paragraphs that include the main idea(s) of the text, and a strong, concluding paragraph.
A summary begins with an introductory sentence that states the text’s title, author, and the main point of the text as you see it.
A summary is written in your own words.
A summary contains only the ideas of the original text. Do NOT insert any of your own opinions, interpretations, deductions, or comments into a summary. You should never use phrases like “I think” “I believe” or “I feel” in a summary. First-person NEVER belongs in a summary.
Identify in order the significant sub-claims the author uses to defend the main point.
