I'm a exchange student that just arrived in the US. The professor is asking us to do this:
Please write and submit brief synopses of each paper before class which include the following:
- the title and authors
- a one paragraph summary of the paper (do not copy the abstract - how would you summarize the paper?)
- 1-3 things you found most interesting (at most one paragraph)
- 1-3 questions that arose for you while reading the paper (at most one paragraph)
I never did this before, specially in English. How should this look like ? You have rules to do (spacing, font, etc.) ? And are the "Title and authors" for my text or the authors of the papers ?
