Use your outline to organize and construct a 300 word micropaper (1.5-2pages) that summarizes the key points of the paper and includes 1) an introduction 2) several points as your discussion section and 3) a conclusion paragraph to demonstrate that you can synthesize and analyze what you read. You are also expected to research terms and concepts within the paper to deepen your understanding AND remember to cite those sources - as well as the article you are assigned to synthesize.
