What is summarizing, anyway? Well, here's our fancy educators' definition:
Readers identify key elements and condense important information into their own words during and after reading to solidify meaning.
But for your students, try this:
Tell what's important.
So what are we trying to do here? Here's how you'll know when your students get it!
The student will be able to summarize what was read to help comprehend text and solve problems across the curriculum.
So, how do you make it happen?
- Watch the videos and discuss them with your class.
- 2. Do the student activity. (Coming this summer)
- Talk about Summarizing all year long.
- Try these lesson ideas in your classroom.
