PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Free Download!
This freebie is meant to help readers distinguish between retelling and summarizing fiction text. Why is that important? Retelling is great for sequencing skills and retaining information, however it requires a relatively low cognitive load. Summarizing, on the other hand, challenges readers to focus on the big picture, paraphrase the author's words, and determine which events are the most important to the overall theme of the book. Hope this proves useful!

Want to go deeper with summarizing? Use SOAR to Success?
Check out my Supplemental Materials for SOAR to Success to teach students how to make thoughtful summary statements independently- questioning, clarifying and predicting posters are included.
