Without explicit instruction addressing the structure and linguistic features of a formal summary of an informational article, students will approach the process as if they were writing an informal summary of the most recent character and plot developments in a narrative text. They are apt to inject personal opinions and fail to clearly state the main idea and most essential details. They are likely to present the information in a random manner, omitting cohesive transitions.

Kate Kinsella Ed.D. 2010 Steps in Summarizing Informational Text Sample Formal Informational Text Summary In the article entitled “LAUSD Goes Sweatfree’” Lawrence Gable examines Los Angeles Unified School District’s decision to not purchase products from vendors that were manufactured in sweatshops within or outside of the United States. Gable reports that LAUSD, the second-largest school district in the country, spends millions annually on furniture, uniforms, and equipment. Because of the district’s vast budget, LAUSD is placing pressure upon vendors to report where they acquired their products and to only obtain merchandise from industries that offer safe and legal working conditions. Gable emphasizes that suppliers must also guarantee that no children are employed, and that all laborers earn a “non-poverty” wage and have the right to form a union. He explains LAUSD’s reasons for taking this action. First, the large urban district serves thousands of immigrant families, with many relatives employed by sweatshops in Southern California. In addition, the district wants to make sure children are actually attending school, instead of working to earn money for their families. Finally, Gable concludes that the district plans to enforce its “sweatfree” policy by charging a $1,000 penalty for any violation, and by working with unions and community members who will inform the district about any manufacturers who ignore labor laws. Step 1 Highlight the most important points in the article. Step 2 Make a brief outline of the most important points. Step 3 Mention the author, the specific genre, and the title of the article in your first sentence. Step 4 State the topic of the article and the thesis/main idea at the beginning of your summary. Step 5 Include only the most important points and supporting details. Step 6 Paraphrase the author’s ideas rather than copy sentences, but be sure to include some of the key topic vocabulary used in the article. Step 7 Don’t include your personal opinions or experiences. Step 8 Present the ideas in the order in which they were discussed in the reading selection. Step 9 Introduce the author’s key points with citation verbs using the present tense (e.g., the author points out, the writer mentions, Gable emphasizes). Step 10 Use transitional expressions to make connections between ideas (e.g. first, also, in addition, furthermore, finally) © Kate Kinsella, Ed.D. 2010 Writing Frame – A Formal Summary of an Informational Text In the (genre: article, essay, editorial, report) entitled (title) (author’s complete name) (verb: explores, investigates, discusses) (topic and main idea/thesis: the topic of… the reasons why… the issue of….)

VOL 5, NO 9 MAY 2004 he Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) is the second-largest district in the country. It has more than a thousand schools and education centers. Every year it spends millions on things like furniture, uniforms and equipment. From now on LAUSD wants more for its money. It wants a guarantee from vendors that nothing came from a sweatshop. Sweatshops started in Britain in the late 19th century. Workers sewed garments at home or in small workshops. These sweatshops crowded workers into unsafe, unhealthy conditions. They worked long hours for low wages. Usually the workers were women and children. Now other industries run sweatshops too. They exist wherever people are desperate for work. In poor countries the workers may be citizens. In rich countries they are often illegal immigrants who are looking for better lives. Smugglers promise them good jobs, but they end up in bad situations. They do not know about labor laws. Bosses often force them to work unpaid overtime. They also abuse workers verbally and physically. Now vendors must tell LAUSD where products come from. They must guarantee that workers earn a “non-poverty” wage. They also must guarantee that working conditions are safe. Workers must have the right to form a union, and the factory may not use child labor. The school district has several reasons for taking this action. It serves many immigrant families. Some of those parents may be working in sweatshops in Southern California. Also, if children are working in sweatshops there or anywhere else, the district wants them in school instead. LAUSD got help from several organizations. One is a labor union in the garment industry. Another is the Campaign for the Abolition of Sweatshops and Child Labor. This group believes that the school district can become a model for others. Already the City of Los Angeles is considering taking similar action. It is not clear exactly how the district will enforce its new “sweatfree” policy. District officials may visit some suppliers. Activists also will inform the district about manufacturers that ignore labor laws. The penalty for any violation is $1,000. In addition, LAUSD will never do business with that vendor again. Factories will change if they have a reason to. LAUSD is giving them a $500 million reason. At the same time, it is setting an example for students and families in the district. The sooner people refuse to buy products from sweatshops, the sooner working conditions will change for workers here and around the world.

Its policy is broader than those of some universities and cities. They usually apply only to clothing with school logos, items in school bookstores, or police and fire uniforms. LAUSD did not pledge any money for enforcement. Activists had wanted the district to spend $125,000 on a third-party certification group. The garment workers’ union that worked with LAUSD is UNITE (Union of Needletrades, Industrial and Textile Employees). Sweatshops in Great Britain were part of the “sweating system.” Workers usually received pay based on how many pieces they sewed.
