PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Summarizing: GIST and Beyond
has everything you need to teach and reinforce summarizing.

I had a hard time finding summarization lessons that include interesting fiction and nonfiction texts, answer keys, and many opportunities to practice summarizing. So I created this unit!

It addresses these Common Core Standards :
RL.6.2; RI.6.2
RL.7.2; RI.7.2
RL.8.2; RI.8.2

Included are the following:
~ guided practice on summary writing
~ graphic organizers
~ six original expository texts: “Shark Week,” “A Dolphin Named Winter,” and more
~ two fictional narratives
~ and answer keys
