I don’t know how to handle this History question and need guidance.
Your summary should be at least 300 words in length and observe the rules of correct grammar and spelling.
An appropriate summary should give an overview of the entire chapter of the book and not just the opening pages. An acceptable summary should not need extensive quotations. However, it is important to note that you must put the author’s ideas in your own words. Simply retyping sentences from the book or superficially altering a word or two is not acceptable–it is plagiarism–so please be careful to avoid this pitfall.
