History and Current Events Tobacco Article Summary

Question Description

I’m working on a history discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.

The goal of this task is to extend our conversation beyond course materials and to analyze the contributions of past cultures/societies to the contemporary world. In other words, to think historically about current events. This requires identifying and understanding the historic contexts which continue to shape our lives today.
Find one current events news article related in some way to the lesson objectives. It may relate to one of the terms for identification or to the broader lesson objectives. For this assignment, let’s limit current events to news articles published within 18 months of your post.
Introduce your post with a one or two sentence statement setting up the historic context. (This is similar to developing the historic context for your Identification posts. Use the tips on the “Thinking Historically” powerpoint.)
Summarize the news article using the guidelines “How To Write A Summary”.

How to Write a Summary
A “stand-alone” summary is a summary produced to show a teacher that you have
read and understood something. It is common in many 1000 and 2000 level classes to
get assignments that ask you to read a certain number of articles and summarize them.
This is also a very common type of writing assignment in graduate school.
How to produce a summary:
1. Read the article to be summarized and be sure you understand it.
2. Outline the article. Note the major points.
3. Write a first draft of the summary without looking at the article.
4. Always use paraphrase when writing a summary. Do not use quotes.
5. Your summary should be one or two paragraphs in length.
The features of a summary:
1. Start your summary with a clear identification of the type of work, title, author, and
main point in the present tense.
Example: In the feature article “Four Kinds of Reading,” the author, Donald
Hall, explains his opinion about different types of reading.
2. Check with your outline and your original to make sure you have covered the
important points.
3. Never put any of your own ideas, opinions, or interpretations into the summary.
This means you have to be very careful of your word choice.
4. Write using “summarizing language.” Periodically remind your reader that this is a
summary by using phrases such as the article claims, the author suggests, etc.
5. Write a complete bibliographic citation at the beginning of your summary. A
complete bibliographic citation includes as a minimum, the title of the work, the
author, the source.
