summarising the main idea

key words:
  • Key words are directly connected to the topic
  • Key words are often repeated in the title and the text
  • A key word helps you to remember an important idea
Use this table to help you summarise the main ideas in a text in your own words.  It is important that you use your own words to show your understanding and to avoid plagiarism.  If you don’t know what some words mean, look them up.

Keywords from the title

Keywords from sub headings
New words I need to look up

Read the text and record key words/phrases that answer these questions:

What?
stupendous storm ship
Where?
Indonesia, Australia, Japan, South America and North America.
When?        
In January 1992
Who?
Mr Ebbesmeyer
Why?
 Lost toys
How?
plastic yellow ducks, blue turtles and green frogs

Now using the words you wrote down summarise the text in 25 words or less.
In January 1992 stupendous storm ship Indonesia, Australia, Japan, South America and North America.Mr Ebbesmeyer  Lost toys plastic yellow ducks, blue turtles and green frogs
