  • summarise the research findings in your own words
  • use the information to create your own work


To synthesise is to:

  • combine the information from all your sources
  • interpret your findings
  • present your results in your own words
  • make conclusions
  • support your conclusions with evidence

Key questions to ask yourself:

How does all the information I have found from all the sources I have used go together?

How can I most effectively show what I have learned?

Your work

  • should be written in your own words
  • should sound like you
  • can be in a variety of formats such as: an infographic, presentation, poster, expert book, iBook or video
