This Smart Board Lesson is perfect as an introduction for summarizing. It was created to be used as a reading mini-lesson and contains built in turn and talks and small group work. It compares a summary to a sponge and uses the SWBST (Somebody, Wanted, But, So, Then) method. Students will then use Cinderella to practice summarizing as a group.
