10th Bel311 class. Summarize

Today class was special because it was on the new year. Today date 1/1/2013 Tuesday. New year was celebrate yesterday night but we still attend class because Uitm Johor did'nt took public holidays for today.

The class was held at u214, we were discussed about the homework that she gave to us yesterday. need to completed exercised from text book. We discussed about "Paraphrasing". Miss zu chosen several person to answer their question start from this day onward my favorite page of bel311 books was page 55-58. If i want to get high marks and increase my performance in english that page is the one i must read frequently. Summary is a shorter version of the essay. It's contain same meaning and same main idea of the essay but it words in it was shorter than the words in the essay. We learn about MIDAS today, M for main idea, I for identify supprot detail, D design, A analyze redundant information and S stand for simplification. We do some exercise find it topic and then summarize them some of dust devil and tornadoes. :D

What is Summarizing??

>Summarizing is how we take larger selections of text and reduce them to their bare essentials: the gist, the key ideas, the main points that are worth noting and remembering. Webster's calls a summary the "general idea in brief form"; it's the distillation, condensation, or reduction of a larger work into its primary notions.
">What Are We Doing When We Summarize??
We strip away the extra verbiage and extraneous examples. We focus on the heart of the matter. We try to find the key words and phrases that, when uttered later, still manage to capture the gist of what we've read. We are trying to capture the main ideas and the crucial details necessary for supporting them.

What the mistakes im usually do... :huhu

  • i'm write down everything back
  • i'm write down next to nothing
  • i'm give the complete sentences
  • i'm  writing way too much
  • i'm don't write enough
  • i'm copy word for word

What should i do when doing summarizing..?

  • pull out main ideas
  • focus on key details
  • use key words and phrases
  • break down the larger ideas
  • write only enough to convey the gist
  • take succinct but complete notes
