Product Description
The GIST summarization technique forces students to choose only the most important details of a selection. Using the 5 reporter's questions, students organize their thinking after they read a nonfiction article or a fictional novel. Students then must provide a 20 word limit GIST. It's a fantastic method, especially for struggling learners. Before I used this strategy, summarization was, for some students, simply copying random sentences out of the book and hoping I wouldn't notice. No More! That won't work with GIST! This can be used in place of a Reading Log or Reading Response sheet. Many other uses include: Literature Circles, Guided Reading groups, whole group instruction, RTI, etc.

In this set, you will find everything you need to get started using the GIST strategy in your classroom.
