In this essay students are asked to identify or “come to terms” with the major claims of a text. This can be a text in any form—a film, a non-fiction article or essay, a short story, or a novel—but the goal is to be able to recognize an “other” point of view, and thus to relocate the focus of student writing away from personal reaction or narrative. A secondary and equally important goal is to establish the practice of analysis as a basis for academic writing. In other words, the assignment should require students to break down the text at hand and in doing so, identify the parts
that come together to make up a whole. Direct quotes should be a required component of the assignment, as well as paraphrase and, of course, summary.

There are many ways to approach the analytical summary, depending upon the chosen text and course theme. But the goal of the assignment is to teach summary, paraphrase, and direct quoting as forms of analytical engagement with a text and initiate critical inquiry, as a first move in the larger course sequence.
