Summarizing an Essay

English 101 Essay Assignment: Summary/ResponseTask: Briefly summarize and then write your own response to one of the essays we have read in this class. The essays to choose from are “Love without Limits,” by Roxanne Gay, “Kitchen Controversial,” by Rebecca Traister, or “Boy’s Life,” by Bill Bryson.Purpose: To let readers know what you think about an essay you have read. Your response should develop some ideas about the essay that other readers may not have thought about. You can do one or more of the following:• agree or disagree with what the author says• connect the author’s ideas to your life experience or to something else you have read or learned• respond to theauthor’s style of writing and how it makes the article more or less effectiveThe summary and other brief references to the article should make up about 25% of your essay, and your own ideas should make up about 75% of your essay.Length and Format: The essay should be about 3 pages long, with 1” margins and 12 point font.You will use informal documentation. In your paper, you will introduce the author and title of the article. Example: In “Chronicles of Ice,” Gretel Ehrlich explains why we should care about glaciers.” Once you have introduced the author and title, you will refer back to the essay by using the author’s last name. Examples: Ehrlich believes; Like Ehrlich, I think; etc.Example:There is a good explanation outline and example of a summary/response paper here:https://letterpile.com/writing/Response-Essay-ExampleAvoiding Plagiarism:• Copying the exact words from a source without using quotation marks (even if you change a few words here and there) is plagiarism. When you refer to the article you are responding to, be sure to rephrase the ideas in your own words.• There is no reason to use any web sites or articles other than the article you are responding to. The idea is to develop your own ideas about the article. Using other sources such as articles, web sites, or discussion forums without citing them is plagiarism.Criteria for Evaluation: Summary and Response Essay (English 101)A• The essay accurately summarizes an assigned article and develops an insightful, detailed, and engaging response.• Ideas are ordered in a pattern that supports the purpose of the essay, and paragraphs are fully developed and supported with ample specific details.• The essay is about 3 pages long, double-spaced, with 1” margins and 12 point font.• Sentences and words convey a tone that engages the reader’s interest, respects opposing views, and supports the purpose of the essay.
