Precis #2 Paul Peterson and The X-Files
Read the Peterson.pdf file that I have attached and follow the instructions on the Short+Papers.docx file ive attached to complete a precis based off the reading. There is an example of a precis in the Short+Papers.docx file. Our teacher told us to think of the following questions when writing a precis: What is the topic? What is the authors main thesis/statement? What is the purpose/aim of the work? Why is the work important? What methods or approaches does the author use? What are the results, insights, or conclusions of the author/work? What key terms or concepts are used? what examples are used? All in all its an authors arguments and how they are supported with analysis of evidence… USE THE TEXT ATTACHED ONLY WITH IN-TEXT CITATIONS… No works cited needed since only using Peterson.pdf file.
