FCA #1: Correct S "T" A r t sentence at the beginning of your summary - 3 points
Example: In Poemuseum.org's article "Poe's Life: Who is Edgar Allan Poe," the museum discusses who the real Poe was despite all of his professional humiliations, personal tragedies, and inner demons.
FCA #2: Include ONLY ONE (1) exact quote in your summary - 2 points
Rationale: Because this is a 10% summary, the essay should be in your own words. However, to test your judgment and quote placement, I'm allowing you to use ONE (1) exact quote in quotations somewhere in your summary. Hint: Choose your quote and placement wisely!
FCA #3: Use and CIRCLE commas grammatically correct - 5 points
Rationale: One of the main problems that I've seen so far in your writing has been comma use. For every comma error that you have, you will lose a point. You cannot lose more than 5 points if there are more than 5 comma errors. Advice: If you're not use on if your comma usage is correct or not, Google it or see me prior towards submission of this assignment.
