__/3 First sentence(s) contains title, author, and the main claim of the piece.
-Contains author(s) and the introduction to the multiple studies which were conducted. Though this “where the researchers obtained behavioral measures of preferences and neurobiological responses to the songs.”…is not the claim of the piece, but more so a blatant introduction of what is discussed.
__/1 The main claim listed seems to be supported by the rest of the summary
-“The authors, scientists and contributors found that individuals were found to adjust their ratings to make them consistent with the population”…the main claim is supported by the deliverance of the scientific measurements following the main claim (anterior insula). But I believe could have been summarized more efficiently. It was just hard to elaborate without adding other summarizations of other tests found within the study.
__/2 Important reasons or subclaims are listed clearly, without vague language
-Besides the paragraph…”The article then leaves readers with two implications of the nuerobiological study of conformity. The first implication, addresses the act of mimicking others where as the second implication, addresses the anxiety mentioned but, in correlation to an external study-involving economists and measuring welfare calculations. Along with these implications, comes the future anticipation of other avenues this research topic could come into contact with-specifically with economics.”… I believe the language is quite spot on. With this paragraph, I was trying to paraphrase the idea of studies of conformity through two implications. My summary did not really make sense and it implies that I need to read over that section again, in order to make a more sensible summary.
__/1 No fluff or needless words that do not add meaning
__/1 No personal reaction—stay objective
-The last paragraph, was definitely a personal reaction but a means to help me filter the density of the study I was summarizing. I believe, the personal reaction is relevant and reflecting that, this path, of reading more science-based sources, could reveal different angles to this topic that would benefit my argument.
__/1 Limit any quotes to essential language or ideas. Use your own words wherever possible
-I used quotes, when explaining the specific details about the study, the logistics and terminology, which obviously-I am using from the source. I believe it assisted with the essential language-to help the reader understand and to allow for my summary to be precise with its findings.
__/1 Correctly cited, in and out of text
-Though, I cited the correct page number, I should have double-checked if those cited sentences/words needed to be given an approximate citation but the sources used within this study. I should have added the author’s last name in the citing.
