Select three related main points from the journal article (excluding the Abstract), and directly quote them.
In addition to the directly quoted main points, compose 1â€“2 sentences of rationale for each main point. Use these sentences to explain the reason you selected each point from the journal article. Consider the following questions in your rationale:
- Why are these three specific points the authorâ€™s main ideas?
- What makes them stand out to you as a critical reader?
- How are these main points related to one another?
