The GIST strategy: Generating Interaction between Schemata & Text.
Students answer the 5 w & 1 h questions and then using that
information they create a 20 word summary (gist). Included with the graphic organizer is a link to an online prezi that I use to help explain the GIST strategy.
If this is the first time you have used GIST I suggest completing the Graphic Organizer whole group. Otherwise, I would let them work collaboratively to complete the organizer.
