Using Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem, "Paul Revere's Ride" students use this handout to create a summary of each of the 13 stanzas.
You may have the students write a sentence summary or create a small cartoon in each box summarizing the poem. (I often give students a choice.)
This box size can be increased or decreased or students can be asked to complete the task in pairs - one student on the odd stanzas and one on the even stanzas.
The poem, if you need it, can be found online with a quick search if you do not already have it.
