Read the text and make notes of the main ideas, important skills and important vocabulary. 3. Clarify your ideas and begin to write to concisely express them. 4. Write your final copy of the abstract for your section using 25 words or less. Include the text section listed above on your document; all documents will be merged and saved together. 5.
