Subject: Buddies Bare Their Affection for Ill Classmate- Summary

​A good summary of an informational text covers the main events or main points, not every single detail. That is why a summary is always much shorter than the original piece. Use the information you read to write a summary of the news story about Ian and his friends. Here are some tips for writing a good summary:

1- Cite the author and title of the article

2- Cite the topic of the article in a few words

3- Retell the main events or main points of the article, using your own words. Include only key events or key points.

4- Sum up the writer's message or main idea

After you have written your summary, read it over and ask yourself: Would a person who has not read the article understand what it is all about? If your answer is negative, go back and revise your summary.
