Each week, you should choose one of the week’s readings and submit a precis – that is, a short, structured summary — to D2L.
Your precis should have exactly four sentences:
– The first sentence identifies who wrote the text, where and when it was published, and what its topic and claim are.
– The second sentence summarizes how the text is developed and organized.
– The third sentence explains why the author wrote this, her purpose or intended effect.
– The fourth and final sentence describes the “for whom” of the text by clarifying who the intended or assumed audience of this text is.
While a precis is not a long piece of writing, it can be challenging to write because it requires you to first, read and understand the article thoroughly, and second, to summarize the article concisely. Each word in your precis matters.
After your precis, please include 1-2 questions that you have about that week’s readings (including the article you summarized, or one of the other articles assigned for that week), and/or some discussion questions that you would like to discuss in class.
Please follow the instruction carefully and I have uploaded the readings and examples of Precis to the file. Please check! Thank you!
