Writing Summaries of News articles

By Shannon Johnson, eHow Contributor



Newspapers include articles focusing on current events, which sometimes have connections to the past, relevant to a local area or an entire nation. The length of each article varies depending upon the information available on the subject, its priority, and the section of the newspaper for which the article is written. When referencing a newspaper article (i.e. in a research paper, current events report, etc.), it is sometimes necessary to summarize an article, which means filtering out the unnecessary information and capturing in words the message the article was translating.
