User: what are the key points of a summary paragraph





Weegy: 1. Read the article. 2. Re-read the article. Underline important ideas. Circle key terms. Find the main point of the article. Divide the article into sections or stages of thought, and label each section or stage of thought in the margins. [ Note the main idea of each paragraph if the article is short. 3. Write brief summaries of each stage of thought or if appropriate each paragraph. Use a separate piece of paper for this step. This should be a brief outline of the article. 4. Write the main point of the article. Use your own words. This should be a sentence that expresses the central idea of the article as you have determined it the from steps above. 5. Write your rough draft of the summary. Combine the information from the first four steps into paragraphs. bullet NOTE: Include all the important ideas. bullet Use the author's key words. bullet Follow the original organization where possible. bullet Include any important data. bullet Include any important conclusions. 6. Edit your version. Be concise. Eliminate needless words and repetitions. (Avoid using "the author says...," "the author argues...," etc.) 7. Compare your version to the original. bullet Do not use quotations, but if you use them be sure to quote correctly. Indicate quotations with quotation marks. Cite each quotation correctly (give the page number). bullet Do not plagiarize. Cite any paraphrases by citing the page number the information appears on. Avoid paraphrasing whenever possible. Use your own words to state the ideas presented in the article. (Adapted from Writing Across the Curriculum 4th edition, L. Behrens and L. Rosen, eds., 1991, Harper/Collins, pp. 6-7.) In the summary, you should include only the information your readers need. 1. State the main point first. 2. Use a lower level of technicality than the authors of the original article use. Do not write a summary your readers cannot understand. 3. Make the summary clear and understandable to someone who has not read the original article. Your summary should stand on its own. 4. Write a summary rather than a table of contents. Wrong: This article covers point X. Then the article covers point Y. Right: Glacial advances have been rapid as shown by x, y, and z. (see sample) 5. ]

The key points of a summary paragraph are conciseness, focusing on the main points, avoiding unnecessary details, maintaining an objective tone, and ensuring coherence.
