This assignment is a writing prompt for secondary students (high school recommended) to complete in or out of class.
They will be required to summarize how 3 different online scholarly sources or news articles convey info about the same topic. The essay should be written from an objective perspective so students can demonstrate their skills with paraphrasing, embedding quotations, and citing source material.
Students will provide an intro and conclusion, as well as 3 separate summaries in about 300 words. Use along with your favorite grading rubric!
There are clear directions, requirements, reminders, resources (provide students with your own notes about summary writing, outline writing, and research approaches), and some recommendations.
There are multiple College and Career Readiness standards (revised 2018) that apply to this assignment.
