Shortcut to summary-writing?

Something is bothering me. I hope anyone who has an inkling of this could share it with me. Had a conversation with a teacher colleague to discuss summary-writing just recently. I was informed that if you teach your weak to very weak students to lift the first three lines of each of the paragraphs in the PMR summary, the students will end up with minimum three content points! My colleague even said that there was a research on this. This is breaking news indeed for me and my first reaction to this was- "Really? How come I didn't know this." My second reaction was, "What are teachers up to now?" Sorry, but something churns in my stomach when I think about this...
