Individual chapter summaries written with English Language Learners and students with learning disabilities in mind. Summaries are detailed enough to allow scholars to follow along with the text and actively participate in class discussions but low enough of a reading level to allow struggling scholars to independently engage with the text.
Two summaries for each chapter in Shipwreck at the Bottom of the World by Jennifer Armstrong.
The Anchor version includes 20 summaries (19 chapters and the epilogue) each around 300 words. Summaries include all significant events and dates from the chapter as well as major accompanying details. Readability levels range from 5.0-6.5 with the majority of summaries between 5.6-5.8 readability level.
The Wheel version includes 20 summaries (19 chapters and the epilogue) that are all 100 words or less. These contain only the most important details or events and are all under a 5th grade readability level. The majority of summaries fall between a 4.0-4.5 readability level.
Summaries can be used in conjunction with one another and the text used to differentiate classwork or homework or to supplement instruction.
