Student writes a summary.

Create your own summary

In this step it will be your turn to create a summary.


Read the text “How mindsets influence motivation” and make a summary.

Try to use the Topic Comment (TC) method by making use of:

  1. Keywords
  2. Restructuring

In your TC summary, you may use symbols, graphs, tables, colours, or any other lay-out to visualise the information. Be creative, as it will be a summary that should work for you!

As opposed to previewing (which should take only several minutes), in this step (study) it is important to take your time. So try not to hurry.

Good luck!
