This activity focuses directly on Reading Literature Standards 2 and 3. Students must decide on the key details of a story to create a summary.
It can be used with any reading/text. I recommend using it for a chapter, but it could also be used for an entire novel, play, film, poem, etc.
It could be in in class assignment - individual or with groups. Or a homework assignment to reinforce learning.
Uses multiple learning styles.
Includes reflection piece.
Students generally really enjoy this assignment, and it is so well aligned with the core! Win-Win!
