Overview. Select a high-quality source on the topic you are exploring and write a precis. A precis is a carefully composed summary in your own words of the specific points embedded in the reading.

Writing a precis is like writing a shortened version of the article you read, putting the author's main ideas into your own words without inserting your opinion. It's a very good way to improve your reading skills and your ability to capture - in a short form - what "they say." Learn more about writing a precis here.
