Precis and Paraphrasing
Transcript of Precis and Paraphrasing
Change the words Paraphrasing Love and Toil maintains that family survival was the mother's main charge among the large majority of London's population who were poor or working class; the emotional and intellectual nurture of her child or children and even their actual comfort were forced into the background. To mother was to work for and organize household subsistence. (p. 9)
Ellen Ross, Love and Toil 1993 Children of the poor at the turn of the century received little if any emotional or intellectual nurturing from their mothers, whose main charge was family survival. Working for and organizing household subsistence were what defined mothering. Next to this, even the children's basic comfort was forced into the background (Ross, 1993). "Precis moves much farther than paraphrase away from point-by-point translation. When you summarize a passage, you need first to absorb the meaning of the passage and then to capture in your own words the most important elements from the original passage" Precis According to Ross (1993), given the magnitude of this survival task, children were deprived of even the "actual comfort" (p. 9) we expect mothers to provide today.
