Product Description
This product is designed to help your students analyze summaries in order to weed out weak summaries from a list. Each page contains a short fiction passage and then four summaries. Students must choose the strongest summary out of the four. Along with each summary there is a table with criteria for weak and strong summaries. Students check the appropriate boxes in order to help them determine the best summary. Another strategy that can be used is the popular BME (beginning, middle, end). Have students write a combination of the letters B, M and E in order to label which parts of the passage the summary covers. Includes nine mini-passages.

These passages have been useful to me around testing season. Students often have difficulty with summarization, I hope this product makes it easier for your students as it did for mine. Enjoy!
