Looking for an engaging lesson that meets the needs of your struggling learners? This mini bundle includes two editable lessons at a discounted price.
♦ Summarize This!
uses Step Up to Writing instructional strategies to teach how to summarize. Students watch and summarize engaging short videos. This enables all students, even struggling readers, to learn the content without barriers. The lesson includes editable PowerPoint slides as well as a student worksheet and a reference sheet of verbs and transition words (not currently editable).
♦ Summarize That!
is a review lesson that uses three new animated short videos to review summarization skills, as well as the skills of character traits, inferences, and author's purpose. Also a great sub day lesson! The review lesson also includes writing prompts based on the 3 included videos! Links to six additional animated shorts are now included, which you can substitute for the original videos or use to provide additional practice.
The scaffolding included in these lessons help students with special needs, English Language Learners, and disengaged learners have all successfully meet the learning targets.
