Summarizing your message for maximum impact.
How do your
visitors or readers read your text?
Word by word?
Time has become
a rare and expensive commodity for most people and when they read a
piece of text or search for
information they want the most concise and complete information in the
shortest possible time.
That's what we
do for you. We summarize your message to include the main context in
the fewest words possible.
summary is condensed version of a larger reading. A summary is
not a rewrite of the original piece and does not have to be long nor
should it be long. To write a summary, use your own words to
express briefly the main idea and relevant details of the piece
you have read. Your purpose in writing the summary is to
give the basic ideas of the original reading. What was it about
and what did the author want to communicate?
reading the original work, take note of what or who is the focus and
ask the usual questions that reporters use: Who? What? When? Where?
Why? How? Using these questions to examine what you are reading
can help you to write the summary.
the central idea of the piece is stated in the introduction or first
paragraph, and the supporting ideas of this central idea are presented
one by one in the following paragraphs. Always read the introductory
paragraph thoughtfully and look for a thesis statement. Finding
the thesis statement is like finding a key to a locked door.
Frequently, however, the thesis, or central idea, is implied or
suggested. Thus, you will have to work harder to figure out what
the author wants readers to understand. Use any hints that may shed
light on the meaning of the piece: pay attention to the title and any
headings and to the opening and closing lines of paragraphs.
A summary uses
fewer words than the original writing to express an idea or message. To
write an effective summary, be concise. Use who? what? when? why? and
how? as a guide. Answer these questions clearly.
read the entire original writing to understand the central idea or
concept. This central concept is the focal point of the writing.
Sometimes this is clearly stated by the writer. At other times it is
implied or hinted at in the first paragraph.
