Summary of an Academic Article from your Group Project

project 1 Part I Read chapters five and fourteen* (“And Yet” and “What’s Motivating This Writer?”) in They Say, I Say. I also strongly encourage reading chapter seventeen*, “Analyze This”, but it is not required. Then, do Exercise 1 at the end of “And Yet” (it’s on page 75). Read the passage they have there (by Julie Charlip, one of my teachers!), and then write a paragraph where you analyze where she is asserting her own views and when she is summarizing those of someone else. Part II Next, pick one of the academic sources your group found in the library. Read it, then summarize it in about a page, by translating it into your own words (as the authors of They Say do with a passage from Judith Butler in “What’s Motivating the Writer”). Focus on summarizing the major conclusions of the article and how the authors support that point. Because the academic articles are fairly long and dense, this will probably be hard, and will probably take you a while – expect to spend some significant time on this! Finally, add an MLA-style Works Cited citation to the end of your summary. project2 Part I: Read chapters seven and eight (“’So What? Who Cares?’ Saying Why It Matters” and “As A Result”) in They Say, I Say. Then, pick another of the academic articles your group found in the library. (A different one from the first Summary assignment, obviously!) Read it, then summarize it in about a page by translating it into your own words (as the authors of They Say do with a passage from Judith Butler in “What’s Motivating the Writer”). Focus on the major conclusions of the article, as well as how the authors support those points. Again, since you’re summarizing a fairly length source, expect to spend some time on this. Part II Then, look back at Exercise 1 at the end of “So What? Who Cares?” (pg. 100). Do that exercise by looking at the two academic articles you’ve read and summarized, then write a paragraph explaining what you saw—did those sources use any techniques you read about in the So What? chapter? If so, where do you see it, and did you think it was helpful as a reader? Or did they not? Would it have helped if they did? Finally, add an MLA-style Works Cited citation of your article to the end of your summary.
