Genom denna övning ges elever en möjlighet att inspireras till forskning och vetenskap samtidigt som de får öva på läsförståelse och uppbyggdnad av vetenskapliga abstracts. De abstracts som används kommer från deltagarna i Stockholm International Youth Science Seminar.



Materialet hittar du på elevsidan och längre ner på den här sidan.

  • Abstracts sorted by subject so your students can choose one of their interest. 
  • A pdf with questions for the analysis of the abstracts


Part 1 
Read the chosen abstract individually and then discuss it. Then, you will be rearranged in new groups, now composed of students who read different abstracts. Now, briefly present the abstracts they read to the rest of their group members (approx. 30 min.).

Part 2

You will now analise a abstract using the following questions (approx. 30 min.):

  • How long is the abstract (no. words)?
  • How is the text divided?
  • Which aspects of the project are described?
  • How is the text written? (formal conventions, first-person/other point of view, grammatical tense, etc.)
  • What is good about the text?
  • How could the text be improved?

Next, you will discuss  the structure and content of the abstracts. Based on these conclusions, discuss what you consider to be useful/less-useful approaches to writing abstract texts.
