1. Locate an article of a medium level of difficulty, from a scholarly journal or trade publication in your field. I would like the article to be between two-four pages long.

Ø First, you will do a visual organizer. That is typically one main heading, then four-five sub-headings with four-five sub-points for each sub-heading. You can do this by hand—it doesn’t need to be typed, though you can if you like.

Ø Write a summary of a minimum of five-eight paragraphs (that is the typical length) to translate it in a nontechnical version. The summary should be between 1,000-1250 words. Photocopy this article for me to look at when I read your summary.

Ø Finally, I want you to write a descriptive summary of your summary. A descriptive summary is even more condensed and should be about one-third the length of the original summary, emphasizing the major ideas in sharper detail.
