Summarizing teaches you how to take a large selection of text and reduce it to the main points for more concise understanding. Summarizing helps you learn to determine essential ideas and consolidate important details that support them. It is a technique that enables you to focus on key words and phrases of an assigned text that are worth noting and remembering.
Summary Writing affords many benefits such as; it builds comprehension by helping to reduce confusion, also it builds on prior knowledge, helps improve writing, and strengthens vocabulary skills.

On the other hand, plagiarism is presenting someone else’s work or ideas as your own, with or without their consent, by incorporating it into your work without full acknowledgement. Just a point of information; all published and unpublished material, whether in manuscript, printed or electronic form, is covered under this definition.
Plagiarism is a breach of academic integrity. It is a principle of intellectual honesty that all members of the academic community should acknowledge their debt to the originators of the ideas, words, and data which form the basis for their own work.

Tabitha, i overheard your conversation with Jane on the bus.
Yes i was merely telling Jane, that a summary contains the most important information of the original.
Thanks guys! I am blessed to have such caring friends. I will head to the library during my free session and complete the assignment.
So did i Justin. Jane, remember paraphrasing is not summarizing!
Jane when you summarize, use the main/important points. Ignore irrelevant information, in so doing you'll have a better understanding of the information.
Guys, you really took this summarizing assignment very seriously.
It also builds your comprehension and prior knowledge. It even improves your memory, your writing and strengthen your vocabulary skills.
That's true Jasmine! Summarizing helps you to determine the essential ideas of the original document.
Good morning students and welcome to another music class. We will continue with the topic "how to read music."
I'm proud of you Tabitha
Sir, I went home and practiced. I even watched YouTube for assistance.
Okay 'Tabs'!I am so privileged to have such awesome friends. Thank you Tabitha for your input and gentle reminders. Hope lunch is great today.
Jane, for the assignment don't forget to say why we should not plagiarize.
Justin, Music class was so much fun today.
What can you say 'Jas', sir got mad skills!
It is also not fair to the person you are stealing information from. They had to do their research.
Hi Jane! Just checking up on you, how is the assignment going? Have you looked at plagiarism
It's good Justin! Did you know that plagiarism is unethical and considered to be fraudulent, and you can be fined or imprisoned for it? This ultimately affect your reputation.
