Two simple anchor charts to help students understand how to summarise fiction and non-fiction.
Fiction: Uses 'Somebody, Wanted, But, So, Then'.
Students should identify who the main character is, what they want, what is stopping them from achieving their goals, how they solve the problem and what happens in the end.
Non-Fiction: Uses SUM (Shorter than the text, Use your own words, Main ideas only)
Students can use the acronym SUM to assist them to create a summary.
