Summary Paragraph Writing
Writing a Summary Paragraph After you have gathered basic facts and information about 'Lucy' and her discovery, you are going to demonstrate what you’ve learned about the topic by writing a short summary (using the same Writing an Event Summary - 'Lucy' document you used last week). Your summary should include only the most relevant information, be composed of your own words and original sentences, and not include opinions or judgements.
If you need some help connecting the ideas within your paragraph, a handy transition word list can be found here. For more guidelines on how your summary paragraph will be assessed, refer to the rubric below.
