Do your students struggle to differentiate between a retell, a summary and the gist of literary or informational text? This poster series is a fun, colorful and student-friendly way to display HOW to give a good retell, summary and gist...and how to discriminate between the three. Each serves a specific purpose and has a place as you teach students to comprehend what they read.
The retell poster includes a rubric that can be used by students to self-assess or peer-assess and get feedback.
Consider modeling each for students and hanging a public record or example of each under the poster, discussing with students the characteristics of each comprehension delivery option.
