My teacher makes us write our summaries 4 or 5 sentences
OneFlagMan (27 days ago)
Then make your summary 4-5 sentences. It doesn't have to be exactly under 5 words, if that's what your teacher wants.

I forgot what a summary was so I had to watch this. Thanks for the info lol
Bajrang Bhai (1 month ago)
What do you exactly mean with five words is (do you count a,an,the,this,that,verbs also or prepositions also as a word)? I'm looking for an Answer. Thanks
Holly Bullock (1 month ago)
Bajrang Bhai I would not count articles, pronouns, or prepositions. The idea is to ensure that the summary is brief.

I'm doing honors English for my freshman year and I have to read a book during summer and I have this 6 page packet to complete over the book before school starts. And it wants me to write a 25-word summarization of EACH chapter... Book: The Pigman

Why is this like... Amazing.. Thankyou so much ! Btw any of you out there have to write a longer summary just change the number 5 for example: I'm gonna change it to 10 because my summary actually needs to be 50 words or more. :) thanks for this video !!!
Hope Borah (3 months ago)
Its a good trick to remember the steps but if in our education system we write a summary of just 20 words they'll not offer a single 2 in our exams.. It should be 2 to 3 pages long.. But I really liked your technique coz it helps to remember everything short way which will help us to elaborate 😊

Wowwwwwwwwwwww Holly that exercise was very usefully effecient in writing summaries and or book reports the way you explained that was very well put you trimmed the fat and you didn't take the long way home like most people do with a lott of talk ,I personally myself was taught by my teacher the five W's rule but your method relating them to fingers was much better and with the steps you walked me right into it,and made it seem so simple with no major effort which leads to no stress for me followed by an anxiety attack when I would have to do a report in a certain time period taught by someone perhaps who has no patients/no true love for teaching anyway just interested in a paycheck ,yes I'm a artist full of passion and I can tell right away if someone may or may not have passion or love for anything just by being around them listening and observing them your method also helped in my song writing as well so I will subscribe😇😎 thanks

Lady Lyn (7 months ago)
Score Moore (7 months ago)
think about it sir if you were to think of 5 words, then you can write about one to two sentences using just one of those words, and then that 1 word now becomes even more words.
Harvey Specter (7 months ago)
beacause a summary isnt an essay lol

Gemma_Chan (3 months ago)

iShani Mami (6 months ago)
Just try 100 to 120. Here we use 100 to 120 and no more it’s cxc English just don’t go over that but ask your teacher which is better for where you’re from
