Have you ever asked your students to retell a complete story or a chapter from a book? If so, you probably wished you had a fast and meaningful way to assess the quality of the retelling. If so, you are not alone! This one page assessment contains a way to score the retelling of any fictional text using a simple, yet effective scale based upon the most important aspects of a quality retelling. It is also a great way to monitor progress and to teach students how to prepare a thoughtful retelling. It can be used with students of all ages and can even be used with a written retelling. It will be a wonderful addition to your assessment toolkit!
