English Language - Academic Summary, Essay

Read Chapter 2 in A Rhetoric of Argument (16-44) and then read my Chapter 2 lecture notesPreview the documentView in a new window. Reread the guidelines for writing a summary, and then read "In Defense of Prejudice (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site." (Jonathan Rauch). I recommend printing this long essay rather than attempting to absorb it online. Academic summary: You are probably familiar with the common practice of summarizing, i.e., condensing a text into something as brief as a sentence or as long as several pages while retaining the integrity of the text's original meaning. An academic summary is, to put it simply, a summary of a piece of scholarly discourse suitable to be used in an academic situation. Like other kinds of summaries, its hallmarks are: The summary presents the author’s key ideas, omitting most details and supporting examples (except representative illustrations when desired) The summary is concise and accurate, true to the author’s original intent The summary reveals no opinion or bias on the part of its preparer (by its nature, the summary reflects only the author’s ideas) The summary is written in the preparer's own words (though the occasional direct quote is acceptable and often desirable) Assignment: Write a thorough and accurate academic summary of Jonathan Rauch’s “In Defense of Prejudice.” Imagining an audience unfamiliar with the text will encourage you to choose your words carefully and offer clear explanations. The introductory paragraph should include the title of the article, the author’s full name, and several sentences that explain what the article is about. Keep biographical information about the author to a minimum (an identifying phrase or, at most, a sentence). You do not need to present the material in the order it appears in the article. However, consider an organization that makes sense given the logical progression of Rauch’s ideas. Ordinarily, a summary does not include details or examples. In this case, however, you will need to summarize a few of Rauch's examples to clarify his ideas. Choose the ones that seem most relevant to you. If Rauch defines a word or phrase in an unusual way, do not assume your reader will understand without an explanation. Use quotation marks to indicate direct quotes. Also use quotation marks around unusual phrases (such as "intellectual pluralism") the first time you use them to indicate that they are Rauch's terms. Once you've quoted such words or phrases once, you can leave off the quotation marks in subsequent uses. The required length of this essay is two double-spaced pages. For other assignments, I'll usually be flexible by a half-page or so in either direction. For this essay, however, one of the skills you're demonstrating is an ability to write a summary to a specific length. In other words, one could summarize Rauch's essay in one brief paragraph or in five detailed pages. But I want you to practice summarizing to a subscribed length, so I'm asking that you get as close to two pages as possible (that's 500 - 600 words). A couple sentences shorter or longer is fine, but do the best you can to fit all Rauch's main ideas into two clearly written pages. It's a challenge but very good practice for college students. http://www.jonathanrauch.com/jrauch_articles/in_defense_of_prejudice/
