Week Four Journal – Summarizing

ÂÂ

This week, you continue writing your journal entries. This journal is designed to give you practice in academic writing, which is very different from the personal essay writing that you have been practicing. Academic writing entails making a point and supporting that point with information from a reputable source. There are three ways to support a point with information from a source: quoting, paraphrasing, or summarizing. This week, you will practice summarizing a source and citing that source in your journal entry. Please be sure to read and review the “Example Journal Entry – Summarizingâ€Â document, which describes how to integrate quotations.

ÂÂ

Note: The journal assignment should not be confused with a personal journal. This activity requires organization, effective stylistics and grammar, and proper source incorporation. It is not a free-writing or reflective-writing exercise.

ÂÂ

The personal essay we have read this week, “Consider the Lobster,â€Â uses narrative and/or descriptive elements (refer to sections 6.3 and 6.4 in Essentials of College Writing), and has a clear purpose. In 250 to 500 words

State the purpose of the essay.

Describe one literary element being used in the essay (refer to sections 6.3 and 6.4).

Explain why you think that literary element is used well by the writer.

Incorporate a summary of the essay and properly cite the essay.

Explain how you plan to use the literary element in your personal essay.

As you are writing this journal entry, please pay attention to the areas that you struggled with in your “Grammar Assessmentâ€Â quiz and “Practice Essayâ€Â assignment.

ÂÂ

When submitting your journal entry, make sure to

Proofread your work for errors in grammar, mechanics, and style.

Format the journal according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Refer to the â€ÂAPA Templateâ€Â handout for guidelines on formatting a title page in APA style.

Provide an in-text citation for the section of the essay you summarize. Refer to the Ashford Writing Center’s Comprehensive APA Reference List Models for guidelines on in-text citations in APA style.

Provide a reference for the essay you summarize. Refer to the Ashford Writing Center’s Citation and Reference Guide for guidelines on citing sources in APA style.

Perform a word count check to make sure the journal is 250 to 500 words in length.

Save the document as a Microsoft Word or compatible .doc or .docx file.

Use a naming convention that includes your last name, week number, and the assignment number (e.g., smith_w2_a1.doc).
