Eng 209 Motai Summaries in Essay #2: Media Violence When a writer of an expository essay uses reference sources (articles, books, etc.) to support his or her ideas, it is assumed that the reader has not read the materials. Therefore, the writer needs to summarize the main idea/s of the sources for the reader.

    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.
