This cross-curricular literacy packet will help you teach - and students to learn - the summarization process. The key is repeated practice of summarizing skills using multiple strategies for differentiation, interest, and reinforcement.
Students will begin with the first resource, “steps for summarizing” checklist. This will help guide you in teaching the strategies and you and your students will use for repeated review throughout the school year. Keep extra copies available, students can keep a copy in their notebooks or binders, you may even wish to blow it up into poster form.
A variety of graphic organizers are provided to facilitate practicing the essential skills for finding the central ideas, key details, and connecting the main ideas.
