Summarizing needs lots of practice! Use these research based best practice strategies in your response to reading stations, spiral stations, guided reading groups, independent practice, homework, parent activity, homeschooling, and for ESL and special ed accommodations and differentiation in middle grades. Somebody Wanted But So Then, Beginning-Middle-End, Character Change, Key Words, Main Idea, plus a colorful chart that guides students through summarizing if their text is fiction or non-fiction.
There are also samples from my classroom showing how we did a close read, classified info, and wrote a summary using evidence from the text - which is great for constructed responses!
