When you have summarized the source text, your summary essay is finished.
Do not add your own concluding paragraph unless your teacher specifically tells you to.
Summary-outline notes are a form of note-taking using a divided page.
Take a notebook page and divide it down the middle.
This will help you get an overall picture of the argument through the outline, and a more detailed reminder of the content via the summaries.
Most summary occurs as part of other essays--indeed, few essays use only one kind of writing.
Look upon yourself as a summarizing machine; you are simply repeating what the source text says, in fewer words and in your own words.
But the fact that you are using your own words does not mean that you are including your own ideas. There is customarily no conclusion to a summary essay.
One of those techniques is the reader’s summary, which you write for yourself, as a way of understanding the text you are reading.
Read a section of the book or article, or the whole thing if it is short, and then close the text and write a summary of the key points.
