The summary will consist of two paragraphs. The first paragraph will be the article summary itself. The second paragraph will be an opinion paragraph in which you will express your concerns, likes, dislikes, or experiences regarding the subject matter of the article. You may also use the opinion paragraph to critique the author's style. Both the opinion and summary paragraphs will be labeled. The entire summary will be a maximum of two pages in length, skipping a line, and written in pen, or one page in length, double spaced when typed. Write or type on one side of page only. The first page will have the date and source of the article in the upper right-hand corner.
