Writing Effective Summaries – Synchronous Online Workshop

  • This event has passed.

June 10 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

This synchronous online workshop is taught by Elena Danilina

Being able to write effective summaries is an essential skill for writing at the graduate level. In this 90-minute workshop, we will examine strategies for writing comprehensive, concise, and coherent summaries by answering questions such as the following: How is a summary different from a paraphrase? How can I distinguish between major and minor details in the text? Should I include my own interpretations of the text in the summary? We will also learn how to better plan, write, and revise effective summaries.

This is the second of 3 workshops in the Academic Writing/Listening for Multilingual Students workshop series.
