Product Description
Do your students struggle with gaining meaning from sections in nonfiction text or chapters in fiction text? This graphic organizer would be perfect for you! The product is 2 pages- one graphic organizer for Nonfiction Text using section headings and one graphic organizer for Fiction Text using chapter titles.
Here's how it works:
For the nonfiction graphic organizer:
1. Have the book and the organizer and tell students to write the original section title in the first box. Then ask them to write what that section is about (1-2 sentences). Next, have them break down those 1-2 sentences into 1-2 keywords. Finally, have them use those keywords to make a new, more telling section heading.
For the fiction graphic organizer:
1. Have the book and organizer and tell the students to write the original chapter title in the first box. This is especially helpful when the chapter only has a number title!
Next, ask them to write a summary of the chapter in the next box, and then just the most important details from the chapter in the third box. Finally, have them rename or name the chapter in a way that shows their new understanding.
This strategy was originally found in Jennifer Serravallo's Reading Strategies Book- Cracking Open Headings.
