This handout provides teachers with a variety of reading passages and questions that help assess student knowledge of summary.
This handout focuses on the reading objective in isolation. Practice pages provide short passage excerpts followed by questions written specifically for assessing summary.
Practice of this objective consists of four exercises. The first exercise is a transparency that can be used to instruct a whole class or a small group about the specific reading objective. It may provide a model for teachers to demonstrate a skill. The first exercise consists of two short passages each followed by one question. The remaining three practice exercises each include four short passages followed by a single question. These can be used as guided practice or individual practice to work toward mastery of the objective. An answer key for each set of exercises is provided.
