Using the information in this week’s required readings, compose an abstract which summarizes your topic problem, highlights key research sources, and offers a solution. The abstract should be one page in length. A good spot to see a sample abstract is at the Purdue OWL site, looking at the citation style you are using.
MLA doesn't typically use an abstract but, if you are using MLA (for topics related to language and literature), please build an abstract.Doing so gives you good practice on summarizing a large journal.
If you are using APA format, you will need to include key words as part of your abstract.
