Teach finding the main idea/details WHILE getting students writing. As an added bonus, students will incorporate citations/quotations into their summaries-isn't that what common core is all about?
Students will read ANY non-fiction text type, identify the topic/main idea, refer back to the text for supporting quotations, and use the provided paragraph guide to respond to the text-it is all very "step-by-step." Designed for multiple uses, multi-use.
-3 versions of writing frame, for scaffolding purposes
Flexible use options:
-students/teachers choose the non-fiction text
-use pages separately in other content areas
-use with shorter/longer texts: novels/books/text book chapters; articles/narratives
-use as a reading comprehension or writing lesson
-use in class and/or at home
-use as a supplement to any reading or writing program
-use to supplement articles/narratives in teacher-purchased books
-use to supplement articles/narratives from on-line resources
-use as part of a reading or writing project
Students will begin incorporating the summarizing "vocab" naturally, in no time!
