1. Make these sections; citation, abstract, lit review, methods, data, conclusion, future/flaws. The articles we read might not be clearly sectioned in this way but this is going to help you to extract what is significant in the article.
2. At the top of the page next to citation, write everything that would go into a citation, todays programs will put it into the format it needs to be automatically
3. Copy paste the abstract next to abstract
4. Summarize the lit review. This is a little odd because the author is actually summarizing everything that others have written and now you are summarizing the authors summary, but you are doing it to get background of what this topic is and what are the key points and theories about this topic. This should be about 3 or 4 paragraphs, maybe more.
5. Methods. What is the author setting out to do, where is the void in the lit review that the author is fulfilling. This should be a long paragraph but in the future, after this class, you might find it easier to combine methods with the data section, I typically do that, methods is what you are going to do with the data you compile to answer the “question”. Question is in quotes because even that can be murky and hard to define.
6. Data. Use bullet points and state every piece of data that was used and what was done with it, and what is significant in the finding.
7. Conclusions. Bullet point the conclusions. Typically authors are giving the results of the data in the context of what others have written (lit review). The author (and soon you) is finally giving their perspective on why this is important.
8. Future/flaws.. no study is perfect. What is missing, what is not accounted for, etc. If you were going to design a study like this what other steps would you take, data/interviews, area to study.

Persistent school segregation does not only mean that children of different racial and ethnic backgrounds attend different schools, but their schools are also unequal in their performance. This study documents nationally the extent of disparities in school performance between schools attended by whites and Asians compared to blacks, Hispanics, and Native Americans. It further examines the geography of school inequality in two ways. First, it analyzes the segregation of students between different types of school profiles based on racial composition, poverty, and metropolitan location. Second, it estimates the independent effects of these and other school and school district characteristics on school performance, identifying which aspects of school segregation are the most important sources of disadvantage....
