and Summarizing Fiction.

You save 20% when you buy the bundle.

Included in this Summarizing Bundle:
Summarizing Nonfiction
This resource contains nonfiction reading passages and activities to help students build a better understanding of what makes a good summary. The activities build on each other to help you scaffold and differentiate as necessary.

This resource focuses on helping students understand that:
1. Summaries should only include information from reading passage or book. Additional information should not be added to a summary.
2. Summaries should only include what the author of the passage thinks. You do not add your own opinion to a summary.
3. Summaries should only include the most important information.
4. Summaries should include enough information to tell the important ideas, but not too many unimportant details.
5. Summaries should be in your own words. A summary should not be copied word for word

This resource does NOT have students practice writing their own summaries. Instead, it is laying the foundation so that students have a really thorough understanding of what makes a good summary. This resource has students spend a lot of time differentiating between "good" summaries and "bad" summaries so that students know what should included when they begin to write their own.

Summarizing Fiction

2. Summaries should only include what the author or character thinks. You do not add your own opinion to a summary.
3. Summaries should only include the most important information.
4. Fiction summaries should include the main problem and solution.
5. Summaries should be in your own words. A summary should not be copied word for word
