Writing # 3 (summary) | Article writing homework help

 

Summarize the research study and results that are reported on in the two short articles by Walter Mischel.  The articles discuss the same research study.  The main difference between the two articles is that they are written for different audiences.  Important details 

Checklist:

  • Your summary should be approximately 1-1.5 pages (double-spaced). 
  • Do not use any direct quotations.  Practice your paraphrasing skills. 
  • Include the MLA citation of the article at the end of the summary.  Center the heading in the page:  “Works Cited.”     And then provide the MLA citation.  (See below for the citations that you can simply cut and paste.)
