Use these graphic organizers to help students learn to properly summarize a non-fiction text. The first graphic organizer has students looking for 2 main ideas from the reading. The second one has students looking for 4 main ideas. Both sets of graphic organizers are editable and can be customized to your classroom.
Also included is a summary page for students to turn the graphic organizer into a proper summary. A list of personal pronouns is included, as students should avoid these in their summary writing. Students need to be able to write a summary without putting themselves into the summary.
