Summarizing nonfiction texts is one of the best reading comprehension, expository writing, and critical thinking exercises! This nonfiction summary digital notebook can be used as the springboard for classroom discussion, for consistent reading and writing practice, and as a foundation for your article of the week routine. This notebook is also a great choice for digital learning!

When reading nonfiction texts, students must be prepared to respond and evaluate, adding unique thought and analysis prompted by the original text, extending the author’s thoughts with their own. This is what "they say, I say" essay writing is all about.
