Changing Perspectives on Summary through Teacher-Research.
Barton, Ellen; Ray, Ruth
Journal of Teaching Writing, spec iss p165-74 1989
Discusses the organization of two basic writing courses around reading and summarizing, following the typical description of summary found in composition texts. Notes that, based on their research, the authors no longer believe that summaries can be completely objective: instead, they believe that summary is an interpretive act and that students should know many ways of summarizing.
