How do you summarize 3 paragraphs of a story?

  • Grammar Composition -

    Sorry, How do i summarize 3 paragraphs of a story about America's impressive structures? It's not the name of a story, it just talks about how brilliant America's structures and inventions are. There is no title in this story. I just have to summarize it. Do i have to look over the story to find important facts and information to gather and put it in my summary?

    Yes, you've got it. You find the important facts and then summarize them.

    Thank you Ms.Sue. So from all 3 paragraphs i should find the most interesting and important ones, gather it, and add it in my summary. And some that helps the readers and teacher know what's going on. Instead of a long summary with all the words in it, it's ok to just make it fewer, and at least it's understood to people who read it. Thanks Ms.Sue!!

    Yes, you want to write a short summary -- no more than a paragraph long.
