In this unit you will learn how to summarise. Summarising is useful both when completing assignments and while studying.
By the end of this unit you will be able to:
- understand what a summary is: ‘the 5Rs’
- recognise a successful summary
- practise turning notes into a summary.
In this unit you will practise writing a summary. Summarising is part of writing assignments. Sometimes in an assignment you are specifically asked to write a summary of something you have read. However, you will need to summarise your reading in most assignments whether you are asked to or not.
