Do your students' summaries include everything or not much of anything? This often happens because students don't know what to include or what to leave out. The summarizing activities here will fix all of that. Each summarizing activity includes note-taking guides and paragraphing frames, making the writing very scaffolded so that students have the structure and tools they need to write a summary that's efficient in length and depth. Teachers/students choose the texts. Visit my store for thumbnail views of each product.
