Your summary should employ one of the templates for introducing summaries from the They Say/I Say textbook. Remember, there is a whole collection of templates at the back of your textbook.

In addition to your summary, explain why you agree or disagree with Blanda’s assertions.

Here are a few points for writing a summary:

· In the first sentence, mention the title, author, and the essay’s main idea or thesis

· Be objective and use the third person “he/she/they” point of view

· Focus on the text and not your own ideas

· Put the summary in your own words

· If you do use a small quotation, put it in quotes, then give the page number in parentheses

· Limit your summary to the key points

· Post your summary to the discussion board
