First you get to read something on the Internet or in your favorite magazine, and then write a summary of it.

Choose any subject of interest to you personally (stamps, bees, security alarms, global warming, sports, etc.) and read about it (or listen to a podcast, or view a DVD). Other suggestions: go to an online version of a newspaper or magazine or radio broadcast, such as The New York Times, The Christian Science Monitor, The Atlantic Monthly, Sports Illustrated, the BBC, NPR, your local newspaper, a website of your choice, and so on. Don't hesitate to read something from a magazine you subscribe to or a book from your local library. Check out your college's online library as well, which you can access through the Resources tab.

After you read and take notes on your piece, write a Summary paragraph. In your summary, try to capture the main ideas of the piece in clear and concise sentences. Remember you are summarizing, so don't include any opinions.
