Pay attention to headings and subheadings. These give you valuable information about what is important information.
Don’t get bogged down by details and examples. There are a lot of these in this article, but they are often NOT essential information, and therefore, may not belong in your summary.
DO NOT COPY THE EXACT WORDS FROM THE ARTICLE. This is plagiarism and will get you a ZERO on this assignment. Make sure to use your own words. If you use a quote, cite it appropriately, but you should not use more than one or two quotes.
Because this is a summary, you must include ONLY information from the article. Opinion or stories from your experience are NOT acceptable in a summary.
Include an APA format citation for the article. See the first entry on this page for the format: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/07/
Try to apply the CONNECT info about pronouns to this assignment.
