Use this scaffold to help your students, step by step, to summarise information.
My Year Four students used this at the beginning of the year and it helped them a lot to identify the main idea and key words in order to summarise. By the end of the year, when they were engaging more in research projects and putting information into their own words, they were already skilled in how to summarise.
I have created two versions; one for the English and one for U.S eg. summarise and summarize.
I hope you like it!
