Many of my middle school students are currently working on paraphrasing, or the ability to restate information in their own words. This task is particularly important to learn for note taking (even homework logs) and writing in school. This weekend, I quickly typed up a paraphrasing activity. The purpose of this activity is for the student to take a message, identify the key details, and re-write the message simply in his own words. I used it today with a few groups, and it targeted paraphrasing beautifully. If you want to give it a try, feel free to download it , and let me know what you think by leaving FEEDBACK!
NOTE: This activity is very simple with NO graphics. Please do not leave negative feedback because it is not super cute!
