ENG 102 Waubonsee Community College Essay 1: Summary Response What Should We Eat? ________________________________________________________ _____________________ “There is no sincerer love than the love of food.” “We are made wise not by the recollection of our past, but by the responsibility of our future.” “Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds, cannot change anything.” – George Bernard Shaw _____________________________________________________________________________ First Draft Due: Wednesday, Jan. 31 Final Draft Due: Monday, Feb. 5 Summary Genre This summary assignment will give you practice in an important research and writing skill. You will rely on summary skills in future English 102 research projects, as well as read and write summaries in other courses, on exams, and in the workplace.

This assignment should demonstrate that you can critically read and fully understand a piece of writing, and then clearly summarize what is discussed by the author, in your own words and in an unbiased manner. Summaries should account for the entire article, but should not attempt to translate the article section by section. When summarizing, you are welcome to rearrange information for concision and organizational purposes. Essay 1 Prompt and Guidelines Choose one article listed below and write an extended summary of it (“they say”), then write a response to the argument made and the points discussed (“I say”). You may use other Chapter 18 TSIS articles as support for your own ideas, but you should construct your own thoughts in response to one particular author. Consider your own relationship with food and your understanding of the cultural, biological, economic, and emotional implications of eating. Use personal experiences, use prior knowledge, and apply critical thinking to compose your response. No outside research is needed, nor is it expected. A summary implies that the information is in the writer’s own words (and in this case, it is expected). Use quotations strategically, and when quoting from the article, “sandwich” them, as described in Chapter 3. Additionally, it is important to avoid mimicking the word choice/vocabulary and sentence structure of the article you choose to summarize. That verges on 1

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
