English 135 Source Summary (100 points) Due 3/15/2015
The purpose of the Source Summary is to effectively summarize and attribute information from a source. Use the library databases to retrieve an article from the Course Theme Reading List on the topic you selected last week. If you are considering a new topic, confirm your choice with your professor. Once you retrieve the article, print it or save a local copy of the full text article to your hard drive so that you can refer to the contents of the article offline. (If the source is from the textbook, this step does not apply.) Read the source carefully, noting the thesis, topic sentences, headings, supporting details, and the conclusion. To become more skilled at summary and paraphrasing, you will practice writing summaries of different lengths on the same assigned source.
For each part of the assignment, follow the instructions provided in Doc Sharing. When you are finished, save the document as <your last name.Wk2 Summary Assignment> and submit it to the Dropbox by the end of the week. due 3/15/2015
