Instructions for the Chapter 9 Summary*
Reading the textbook and writing chapter summaries are an important aspect of this course . The textbook and your chapter notes will provide you with a basic
understanding of the material that will allow us to discuss issues , events , and current issues in depth . In addition , well - constructed chapter summaries will make*
studying for the quizzes , as well as the final exam , much easier . Placing effort into your chapter summary now will be of assistance to you at the end of the course .
Constructing a good chapter summary involves two basic steps :
1 ) Read the chapter .
2 ) Reread the chapter and construct an outline .
3 ) Write and submit the chapter summary assignment in the form indicated in the Chapter Summary Format ( PDF , attached ) .
NOTE : For the section about the important people , discuss the contributions of Lawrence Mead first . Add one for one set , for joint research ; additional individual ('s )
of your choosing . Important individuals are often discussed in the text , but they are also sometimes listed in the footnotes or references at the bottom of the maps ,
tables or other figures . Presidents , members of Congress , Governors , or other elected officials are usually not important for these summaries unless they originated
a new idea or practice that makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the main ideas and concepts in this chapter . Look for researchers in the discipline .
You must explain each individual's contribution ; go beyond simply listing a publication or action to explain why and how it enhances our understanding of public policy.
and public policy analysis . DO NOT COPY IDEAS DIRECTLY FROM THE TEXT -- PLACE INTO YOUR OWN WORDS ! Definitions need to be in your own words , and in
complete sentences . To do this properly it helps to avoid using the glossary . Go back to the text and look at the word in context .
Some reminders to keep in mind :"
Make sure you read then re - read chapter ( trust me it will help!*
"You may use a combination of a traditional outline WITH graphic organizers ( such as diagrams , charts , sequence chains , or time lines ) to organize the
information as appropriate .
