This was created for an advanced ESL class. This worksheet contains individual activity for the students and a group activity after. Groups of 4. Each students reads a scene and creates a GIST statement. After that they have to share and discuss, copy the statements on a group sheet and create a group GIST statement based on what they read. This can be a 2 day lesson or a day lesson depending on the students. There is an example to follow. There is also a summary to help lower students. There is a ppt lesson available as well. When you print this worksheet, I would print pages 1 and 3 together and only one sheet per group. Great strategy to use for reading and for getting through a long text while engaging students using GIST strategy.
