Abstract

This paper describes the use of article summaries in accounting courses. Article summaries promote active learning. They assist students in improving their reading comprehension, learning, thinking, and written communication skills. We provide a template for the writing assignments, a grading rubric, and a list of accounting related periodicals for various accounting courses. We also suggest strategies for administering and grading the assignments to minimize the workload for instructors. [PUBLICATION ABSTRACT]
