Your Assignment:

This assignment is a one-paragraph summary of the  Stephen Marche’s “Why You Should Stop Yelling at Your Kids” (which is  linked to just below). The purpose of your summary is to capture a  concise yet comprehensive picture of the author’s argument for your  reader who is not familiar with the source; work hard at recreating the  argument concisely yet comprehensively in your own words.

Mini-Lesson: How to summarize a source that uses sources

You will see that Marche heavily uses  Dr. Kazdin as a source. You may be wondering how you summarize Kazdin’s  ideas as a part of Marche’s ideas. It’s really simple. Just keep  reminding yourself and your reader that Kazdin is Marche’s source. So,  rather than switching from naming Marche as the primary author to  Kazdin, you will switch to naming Kazdin as a source Marche uses to make  his argument. For example, you can use attributive tags such as the  following when you get to the Kazdin-part of Marche’s article:

  • “To give readers a solution to the problem of ineffective summaries, Sardoni introduces Dr. Nimmy Nair, a professor of…” 
  • “Sardoni presents Nair’s three principles for good summary writing to give students a map to…”
  • “Nair’s first principle, according to Sardoni, is…” 
  • “Nair’s principles allow Sardoni to persuade her audience that…” 

And so on. Keep the focus on  the primary author and his/her argument, including making it clear when  the primary author uses sources to support his/her argument. Does this make since? If not, post your questions in the Class Cafe.


  • Formatted to MLA Guidelines     
    • Here is a link to Purdue’s Writing Lab website with the details of how to format to MLA guidelines:
  • One Paragraph
  • 200-250 words long (or 20-25% of the sources length)
  • Saved and posted as a DOC or DOCX file
  • Begin with a sentence that identifies     
    • the author by full name, the author’s credentials, the name of  the article/speech, the name of the publication, and the year the source  was published.
  • In every sentence following the first sentence, use attributive tags to attribute the ideas to the author:     
    • use the author’s last name or he/she
    • and use phrases such as “according to” and precise signal verbs.
  • Use transitions and other signposts to show the relationship  between the ideas, capturing the structure and flow of the source’s  ideas.
  • Use quotations sparingly, if at all.
  • Represent the source’s ideas accurately, fairly, objectively, and comprehensively yet concisely.
