While writing your abstract you will be forced to make some critical choices about which elements to feature. From reading your abstract an interested party should have a clear understanding of the contents. This understanding should be detailed enough for them to be able to offer their own interpretation and opinion on the contents.

g. How can I synthesize this material into my major course of study (MSA, MA, Certificate, etc.) in order to better understand my discipline?
NOTE: , These are not questions that you have to answer in your opinion piece.they are only meant to guide you. Similarly, you are not necessarily limited to these questions. Use them as a starting point and feel free to develop your own issues and opinions as you engage the ideas, issues, and information in the article/chapter. Your opinion piece should move beyond a simplistic I liked it/I didn’t like it kind of statement and critically interpret the articles contents.
