Choose any article that interests you from a reliable source. You may choose an article on current events, social issues, your field, or any topic that you like. Some sources that students often use include: CNN, New York Times, BBC, Newsela, Science Daily, Washington Post, Huffington Post, Psychology Today, and the Atlantic. Some students use articles from their field of study.
Read the article carefully and try to understand the main points and details. Find some new vocabulary and idioms that you can learn from the article.
Then, write a short summary of the article in your own words. If you use more than four words in a row directly from the article, remember that you are quoting, so you must mark the words as a quote.
