Workshop taught by Elena Danilina

This synchronous workshop will be offered online and will not be recorded. Please register to recieve the confirmation e-mail with the workshop details.

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 third of 4 workshops in the Types of Writing workshop series.
