Summary of America is in the Heart
Due Tuesday, February 4
400-500 words, typed, double-spaced, and stapled.
For this assignment you will write a summary with very specific requirements. These requirements are very important for my evaluation of your summary.
Here are the steps for writing your summary:
It is likely that your summary will consist of a block quotation for the short passage followed by three paragraphs, one for steps 2, 3, and 4.
The following errors will result in a reduction of your grade:
1. Not following the requirements. For example, your grade will be reduced if you tell the story from beginning to end.
2. Plagiarism (I will not give you credit, but you can rewrite the assignment for credit).
3. Factual errors and misrepresentation of events in the novel.
