PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Summarizing Nonfiction PowerPoint: This bundle contains 3 resources that will help you teach students how to write a summary about a nonfiction text.

To begin your instruction of how to write a nonfiction text summary, you will present the 40-slide PowerPoint. It follows the following format:

Slides 1-5: Introduction & Key #1- Differentiate interesting and important.

Slides 6-11: Key #2- Identify the text structure used by the author. This section includes 5 practice slides where students read a brief summary and identify the text structure.

Slides 12-14: Key #3- Identify the main idea and important supporting details.

Slides 15-23: How to write the Main Idea Sentence of a Summary (Follow this pattern: identify text, verb, topic, and big idea- several examples are provided.)

An example main idea sentence: In this book (identify text), the author identifies (verb) several endangered animals (topic) and explores ways humans can work together to save these species from extinction (big idea).

Slide 24: A List of Strong Verbs for your Main Idea Sentence

Slides 25-39: Step by Step: Writing Entire Nonfiction Summaries Students read a nonfiction passage, write a main idea sentence (like the one above), and then identify 2-3 key details. Once they have these pieces identified, they write their nonfiction summary. This section includes FIVE practice passages.


This file also includes a 4-page PowerPoint Companion handout. This allows students to be completely engaged, writing on the handout and recording their summaries as you advance through the PowerPoint.

Once you complete the PowerPoint, students can create a matching Interactive Notebook entry. This entry includes the three keys, a list of strong verbs, and a passage that will give students another opportunity to practice writing a main idea sentence.
