This is a great activity to complement your student of Emily Dickinson. It can go with any of her poems, but best corresponds with my "Emily Dickinson Reading Guide" for sale in my store.
In this activity, students must write a 25-word GIST statement about one of her poems. Slide also includes a word bank of essential and relevant terms that students must include in their statement.
GIST statements are very beneficial when teaching students to write summary statements as well as to write in general. These short statements teach students to write concisely and purposefully.
