Writing a summary is a great way to process the information you read, whether it’s an article or a book. If you’re assigned a summary in school, the best way to approach it is by reviewing the piece you’re summarizing. Skim it first, then read it thoroughly in preparation for taking notes. When you get to writing your summary, rely on your memory first to make sure the summary is in your own words. Then revise it to ensure that your writing is clear and the grammar, punctuation, and spelling are all perfect.
