Reading Summaries

Before you write your own summary of an article, you'll want to read a sample to get an idea of how it's done. In this lesson, you'll read a sample article and summary. As you read them, pay close attention to what parts of the original article are included in the summary and how those ideas are expressed in a new way.

Reading a Sample Article and Summary

A summary identifies the key information in a text, condenses it, and states it using the writer’s own words. Read this article about a special type of hot dog eaten in the country of Chile. Search for the main idea and key details.
