TWO VERY DIFFERENT note-taking and paragraphing frame-sets WILL get students writing summaries about non-fiction while teaching them the steps it takes-including finding the topic/main idea/details.
Students will read ANY non-fiction text type, identify and notate the topic/main idea/details, and fill in a paragraph frame that guides their writing. Designed for multiple uses, multi-use. See my store for thumbnail previews of each of these products.
-1 set includes a note-taking guide that teaches how to find the topic/main idea/details, 2 paragraph frames and key/sample/teaching suggestions
-the 2nd set includes note-taking guide for notating topic/main idea/ details, and 3 versions of writing frames to incorporate QUOTES and key/sample/teaching suggestions
Flexible use options:
-use pages collectively or separately; some pages may be interchangeable
-students/teachers choose the non-fiction text
-use with shorter/longer texts: novels/books/text book chapters; articles/narratives
-use as a reading comprehension or writing lesson
-use for whole group/small group lessons or remediation

These pages will simply become "reference" pages in no time as summarizing will come naturally!
