ENG 200 Essay #1: Summary 

     Summary: “Social Class and the Hidden Curriculum of Work”
Overview:
Throughout your academic career you will be asked to summarize and respond to the materials you engage with. This assignment will ask you to produce an explanatory summary of Jean Anyon’s “Social Class and the Hidden Curriculum of Work”.  To prepare for this assignment we will critically examine Anyon’s text, noting the methodology and findings of her study, and the overall argument she puts forth.

Purpose: Your purpose for writing this essay will be to critically examine and analyze the text, and to accurately and objectively represent the ideas of the text.

Audience: Your audience for this assignment is your instructor and your classmates. Although your readers are familiar with the text you’ve chosen, you should thoroughly represent its main ideas and key points, and provide accurate textual evidence throughout.

Requirements:  Your summary should accurately and objectively represent the authors’ purpose and main ideas in less than 1000 words (about three full page).  It should also adhere to the guidelines for academic summary covered in class and readings.

To achieve your purpose with your audience, use the following strategies in your summary:

  • Introduce the text in the beginning of your summary so your readers know which text you are summarizing. Include the author (or authors’) names, the date of publication, and the publication title within the introduction;
  • Focus on the writer (or writers’) arguments by reporting the text’s thesis and supporting ideas. Show that you understand the “big picture”—the writer’s (or writers’) purpose and how he or she supports it;
  • Avoid giving examples and evidence that are too specific, to maintain the focus of the overall argument of the article. Feel free to generalize about types of evidence, kinds of examples, and rhetorical strategies used by the authors to support their argument;
  • Use author tags so that your reader understands that you are reporting authors’ ideas;
  • Use an objective tone and a mix of paraphrased and quoted source material.

Paper Length: 1000 words (about 3 full pages)
Worth: 10% of your final course grade
