Product Description
This unit includes PowerPoints, activities, and texts to help you teach focused lessons for summarizing success. These activities complement the research-based strategies discussed in my book, "Summarizing, Paraphrasing, and Retelling."

Students will begin by practicing paraphrasing in a whole class activity, and reviewing with handouts. Then, choose from 6 included original texts (leveled 3-6, depending on the background knowledge of students) and a variety of accompanying activities. Summarizing activities include choosing the best summary, summarizing sections of text, sorting ideas as important or less important, and writing a summary. Two assessments are also included so that you can measure your students' progress.

Texts: SR-71 Blackbird (grades 2/3)
The Thunderbolt (grades 2/3)
Migrating Mole Salamanders (grades 3/4)
How Do We See in the Dark? (grades 3/4)
Mysterious Mushrooms (grades 4/5)
Columbian Exposition (grades 5/6)

Please be sure to read over the Preview carefully to see what is included. Thumbnails of selected texts are included.
