****Paraphrasing and Summarizing Motivating Quotes****
One of the skills my middle school students struggle with is their critical thinking skills. Whether it is developmental or a metacognition skill (thinking about thinking), “thinking outside the box” is one of the most difficult abilities for middle school students to master. Therefore, it is important for students to practice analyzing texts to develop this skill.
This product works on two major skills: analyzing quotations and paraphrasing/summarizing. This product contains 30 quotations that asks students to paraphrase, or put the author’s words into their own thoughts. Because students paraphrasing can be lengthy, this product also teaches students how to condense their writing by funneling their thoughts into a two-sentence summary.
The quotations that are featured are extremely motivational; therefore, they will encourage and inspire your students to be and do their best!
