Summarize the Article:
IN YOUR OWN WORDS, summarize what the article is about. Read the article first and then explain what you think the article was about. Do not just repeat facts but look for the reasoning behind the article. For example, if an article about research, try to identify the question that the researchers are trying to answer and, if it is included, identify their hypothesis. Describe the experimental design and summarize the results of the experiment. Discuss the conclusions the authors made about their question.
Explain Your Response:
This is NOT what the author thinks but what you think about the article. This section CAN be written in 1st person. You can think about the following questions as you write your response but do not answer these questions. How well was the article written? Did you understand everything? Did you have more questions? Is there enough information provided in the article for you to evaluate the quality of the information or research? If yes, what is your evaluation of the quality? If not, what other information would you need to have in order to make this judgment? Explain your reasoning. Summarize your own unique response.
