Summary from a comparative paper (class 8, Hamburg, 2002), which was very well done and can therefore be used as a template/example. Template text, table of contents and hints on possible difficulties in writing the table of contents.
- 01.04.2009 (modified: 02.04.2017 )
Many students have encountered the following difficulties with the submitted text:
- You described the situation by way of introduction, i.e. the visit of the Indian, instead of what it is about.
- The sound was not immediately named as the chirping of the cricket, so the students ran the risk of retelling the narrative sequence.
- Ün the final statement of the Indian, many people did not reach the generalizing statement of the text, so they did not draw an interpretive conclusion.
One work completely fulfilled all criteria. We therefore print them after the text to be reproduced. Wulff
Task: Summary of contents
The text serves as a template Frederic Hetmann, sound of the cricket – sound of the money. You can find a lot of information about this text on the web. In Google, type the author and the first terms of the text (z.B. hetmann grille eines tages indian reservation), link to a sample search on Bing, sample search on Google.
Summary of content
from S.P., Class 8c
This text is about proving that all people hear equally well.
An Indian visits his friend in town and is confused by the noise around them. The two friends are walking down the street and the red man hears a cricket chirping. However, the man from the city does not hear the cricket. He hears only the noise of the cars and concludes that the Indian was mistaken because it is much too loud to hear a chirp. In front of a house wall the Indian finds the cricket. Now the other one hears the chirping and says that Indian ears are better trained than those of a white man. The one who, in the opinion of the city man, has better hearing, disagrees and, to prove to his friend that this is not true, makes a test by throwing a 50 cent piece on the asphalt. Passers-by, even a few meters away, stop and turn to listen to the jingling, which is no louder than the chirping of a cricket. This proves to the white man that all people hear the same, but everyone hears only what he wants to hear and seems important to him.
This text shows me that most people are only interested in the material, not all the beautiful things of our planet.

The revision (would be for elementary school kids only):
1. Introduction and title type, name, author (,time), very briefly what happens
2. Main part:
An Indian visits his friend in town and is confused by the noise around them. The two friends are walking down the street and the Indian hears a cricket chirping, but the friend does not. He hears only the noise of the cars and then decides the Indian is wrong because it is much too loud to hear a chirp. In front of a house wall the Indian finds the cricket, now the other also hears the chirping and thereupon says Indian ears are better trained than those of a city man. The one who, in his friend’s opinion, hears better, disagrees and, to prove to his friend that this is not true, makes a test by throwing a 50 cent piece on the asphalt. Passersby even a few feet away stop and turn around at the chirping, which is no louder than the chirping of a cricket. This proves to the white man that all people hear the same, but everyone hears only what he wants to hear and seems important to him.

here is my suggestion for a synopsis:
The text "Sound of the cricket – sound of money" is a short story by Frederic Hetmann, first published in 1971. Topic of the text is the different weighting of values in western societies and primitive peoples.
An Indian visits his white friend in the city. The two friends are walking together along a busy street when the Indian hears a cricket chirp. He asks his friend whether he also hears the chirping but this denies. Thereupon the red man shows the white man the cricket, which has hidden itself in a vine tendril. When the white man sees the cricket, he also hears its chirping. Now he makes the assumption that Indians have better hearing than whites do. The Indian denies this and backs up his claim with a proof. He drops a 50 cent piece to the ground. The noise that is produced is no louder than that of the cricket, and yet even passersby who are standing further away become aware of it. Thus the Indian proves to his friend that all people in the world hear equally well, but that people only perceive what they are used to paying attention to.
The author’s intention is to make the reader aware that every society has its own value system. In western societies, money and material things are given a much higher value than in primitive peoples, whose basic appreciation is directed towards the small peculiarities of nature.
The text appealed to me because it makes you think about different values.

To the comment 41:
This is not a real summary although it is from Wikipedia. There was too much tension built up and it’s more of a retelling than a synopsis. In addition, no dialogues are used in the table of contents. If you have to write dialogues in a summary, use indirect speech.
wrote BD on 05.10.2013
I think the content is too much and there are too many spelling mistakes. I agree with all of you but you have to have your own opinion at the end of the text and I know that I’m in 8th grade and I’m writing a paper about it on Monday . still ask then ask me soooooooooorrrrrrrrryyyy for my opinion but that misste now nommal mar be .

In the story "Sound of the cricket – sound of the money" by Frederik Hetmann it is about the fact that everybody pays attention first of all to what is important and significant to them.
it is about an Indian and his white friend. Hetmann tells this short story about an Indian and his white friend in the he-form.
The Indian and the white man are walking down a street in a big, noisy city. When the Indian hears the chirping of a cricket, his friend does not believe him at first. But the Indian leads the white man without difficulty to the chirping cricket. The white friend then states that Indians would have better hearing. But the Indian teaches him better. He takes a coin and throws it on the street. It does not jingle louder than the cricket chirped before. All the white people nearby hear it.
So the Indian proved to the white man that it is not the volume of the sound that matters, but how much you are used to paying attention to something. Indians do not hear better than whites, but they live in and with nature, whereas whites are very keen on money and can therefore perceive the jingle of a coin even in the greatest noise.
This text shows me that most people in our country are only interested in the material and no longer for the beauty of our planet. I find this very sad. However, many Indians are still very much connected with nature. The white man (= our society) has unfortunately forgotten to treat nature with respect. Unfortunately, money and power play too important a role in our society. I think that is a pity.

So I find this text summary insufficient as a sample solution.
Therefore I try now simply times mine here to adjust.
I know that this is not perfect, but I would be pleased about improvement suggestions.
The short story "Sound of a Cricket – Sound of Money" by Frederic Hetmann is about the differences between the importance of an Indian and a white man.
An Indian man visits his white friend in town. While they are taking a walk, the stranger, contrary to his friend, claims to hear a cricket chirping. As proof, the Indian goes to a house wall and shows the cricket to the astonished white man. After a while he says that the hearing of the red man is better trained and that this is the reason for the hearing of the indian man. This one, however, proves his white friend wrong by throwing a 50 ct piece on the street. By the ringing of the coin on the ground immediately several persons become attentive to it. They bend down and look for the coin. On this the red one thinks that his hearing is not better than the white man’s, but that everyone hears well what he is accustomed to pay attention to.
I wrote this the way we did it in 8th grade. Class Gymnasium in Germany/Bavaria have learned. Our teacher does not want us to write a conclusion.
Suggestions for improvement would be nice.
wrote NL on 04.04.2013
So dear/love S.P. what you wrote is completely wrong this is not a short version. In a short story there must be an introduction, a main part and maybe a conclusion, but it is not necessary.
Introduction: In the (text type) of the (name of the author) of the on 23.3.2013 of the time was published it goes around that (content core)
Main part: write important sentences and in present tense.
This text according to the Austrian grading system I would give 4,5 because you have to keep the content on one track but someone dared to write and publish it
And spelling reform your grammar is bad and these are comments and not texts or reports.

Hi guys first time here and have a summary of the text "sound of the cricket – sound of money". It would be nice if you could grade it.
The story "Sound of the cricket – Sound of the money" by Frederic Hetmann is about an Indian who shows his white friend that all people hear equally well.
An Indian leaves the reservation to visit his white friend in town. There they walk through the streets until the Indian hears a noise and asks his friend if he hears the noise. His friend says he only hears the many cars honking and the many people. The Indian says he hears a chirp and uncovers a cricket hiding in a plant. His friend is surprised and answers after a while that indians have a better hearing. But the Indian retorts that all people have an equally good hearing by proving it. He throws a coin on the asphalt and people notice the jingle and says that the jingle is not louder than the chirp, but people still notice it. The reason is not that Indians have better hearing, but that everyone hears well what he pays attention to.
Please write out the mistakes and give suggestions for improvement!

1.The author is MISSING
3.Title is even not there :((
4.About the release date I say nothing now (not known)
5.Content level is missing in the introduction
6.Meaning level is there but I don’t think it’s correct.
I find the main part really a bit too long.
It also sounds a bit like a retelling.
It’s already right to give your own opinion (position statement. )
Nevertheless, I do not think that is the message of the text.
I also have the topic of content at the moment and find this example deficient.Please don’t be angry with me but this really has to be said.
This is really not a good example

Heey I have also written a content statement would be nice if you tell me what I should improve !!
The story " The sound of the cricket " by Federic Hetmann is about an Indian who teaches his friend the white one that all people hear equally well.
When the Indian is with his friend the white man, he is totally confused by all the noise.
Docher hears a cricket chirping but the white one hears nothing
when the indian shows his friend the cricket he hears it too.
The reason the white guy gives is that the indians hear better, but the indian shows him something and drops a 50 cent coin.
Suddenly all white turn around and one picks up the money.The smoke was no louder than the cricket chirping.
The Indian shows his friend that everyone hears equally well, but everyone listens to what they are used to.
HOPE YOU LIKE IT AND IF YOU WOULD DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT JUST WRITE IT AS COMMENT

I am just in the 8. I was in the third grade of a secondary school and had this short story as well. I myself find the story simple, but it also has a few difficulties with it. I think that the introduction, as I said before, is too short. (But I think everyone knows that now!) The main part is actually not so wrong, because it is not about how well a person can hear, but that nowadays one hears only what one wants to hear. You can definitely put your own opinion in the closing part, but you shouldn’t overdo it. (What hasn’t been done!)
so please do not exaggerate with your comments, the author is also only a man. And actually it’s also quite good that it’s not PERFECT, because otherwise everyone would probably copy it

On an everyday trip, a 24-year-old is surprised that the train stays in a tunnel for an unusually long time, which he usually never notices very much. His restlessness grows, but the fellow passengers are not worried. The conductor also assures him that everything is fine.
The 24-year-old asks his way to the train driver. He can not explain the long tunnel. Together they fight their way to the locomotive. The driver’s cab is empty, the engineer jumped off after only five minutes. But the train driver stayed on board, out of a sense of responsibility for the passengers and because, as he says, "he has always lived without hope". The locomotive no longer obeys, the emergency brake does not work, and the train races faster and faster into the dark abyss.
"What are we going to do?" asks the train driver in despair. "Nothing," the 24-year-old replies to him, "without turning his face away from the deadly spectacle." "God let us fall, and so we rush towards him."

wrote student on 15.12.2010
So this story is something for 5.Graders and for 8th graders.Class much too simple!
Besides, this is not a real synopsis, because there is neither a proper introduction nor a conclusion. It is more like a retelling, because the main part is much too detailed!
Here is my tip for writing a summary:
-Always summarize texts SACHLICH.
-Divide the text into introduction, main part and conclusion.
-Formally, you make your outline clear by setting up sections
-In the introduction must be: Author, title, type of text, place and time of the action!
-In the main part you give the content factually and in your own words
-Always use the present tense.
-To express something premature, use the perfect tense!
-To reproduce verbatim quotes use indirect speech!
-At the end formulate your personal opinion!
-Write something about the possible intention of the author and don’t forget the "linguistic means"!
Next time it will be better!

Many here wrote this summary is too short. I deny that, even though I don’t know it very well myself. I find this table of contents doesn’t really aim at the author’s intention (which was also my mistake), but more of a short retelling. I am not the student who learned a lot in his secondary school time but what some ”super-gymnastics” write here is big crap. A synopsis of almost two pages and that on a high school is just bad. I know that there are different lengths (depending on the text).

Be careful not to use tapeworm sentences. You have four or five commas in one sentence and that’s too much. But that’s how you got the punctuation right. Also just stick to the facts. So the summary is okay. Just one more thing about the length: I would, if you leave out the unimportant stuff, make the whole synopsis a bit longer. You can write your own opinion, but you don’t have to. Rather the intention of the author.

The end is probably written by a nature lover and is completely inappropriate.
