Article Summary:

  1. Within the summary students are to include, and cite the source they used.  Your source should be referenced WITHIN the summary and not just listed at the bottom of the page.  EXAMPLE of internal citation: According to the Mayo Clinics 2021 survey, 53% of dentist found flossing reduces cavities.  
  2. This is a SUMMARY and students should NOT be cutting and pasting info from articles.  Be mindful of PLAGIARISM. Quotes/unoriginal information should be less than 5% of your summary, yes this even includes quoting. The summary should NOT be a cumulation of unoriginal information,  as per statement above.  The majority of the summary should be your words/summary. Students should use Grammarly to avoid point deductions for grammar, sentence structure, word usage, plagiarism and unoriginal information. For access to set up a Grammarly account students can refer back to Module One (1) Course Materials.  
  3. The Summary should be one complete typed page, double-spaced (less than a full page will be graded accordingly).  However, it is not to be one LONG paragraph. Include NO HEADING other than your name and group number on one line.  Example: Sally Mae, Group #6.  Document settings are to be Time New Roman font, size 12 and standard 1 inch margins.  Submissions are to be WORD docs only.
