Preparing for Project 2: Academic Summaries
I dont understand this English question and need help to study.
Another skill we will be practicing and honing all through this course that helps with the building blocks of argument in academic writing is the art of the academic summary. Academic summary is a way for us to introduce a piece by another author in our own work, so that we can inform our readers of the conversation we are entering when we are responding to others. Primarily, so our readers won’t get lost.
Please read the Academic Summary PDF/Academic Summary Directions and Worksheet for instruction on how to write an Academic Summary. Please read through the examples and use to the worksheet I’ve given you to prepare your academic summaries.
Then, write an academic summary (1-2 paragraphs) for each of the sources you have chosen for Essay 2. Remember the first time you mention a source in your essay, you must provide an academic summary. You can combine both academic summaries into the same document you upload. If you have questions, please ask me, and I will do my best to answer them.
There are examples of Academic Summary in the worksheet, but here is a student example (to help you shape your own summaries.)
