Three point summaries

Three Point Summaries

  • (15 pnts) Prepare a brief "three point" summary for each assigned reading from the required textbooks. If there is reading from both books for the week, you only provide “three points” total.

  • Provide at least three sentences per each “point”.

  • The summary should convey your understanding of the material.

  • Email each summary to, and, on a weekly basis
