This product, newly improved, contains a PPT (with PDF option) and guided notes that will provide the basics for teaching students how to summarize a nonfiction text. With purchase, you will also receive two different worksheets (sold separately in my store - called Nonfiction Summarizing Practice) to use as practice for nonfiction texts (one provides links to relevant, high-interest news clips, and the other can be used with any nonfiction text). Additionally, I'm including my close reading assignment about cliques, which can also be purchased separately in my store. This assignment could work well to lead into an additional nonfiction summarizing activity.
A suggested lesson plan/outline is included as well as a unit quiz. All answers for the quiz are straight from the direct-instruction PowerPoint except for the section where the students demonstrate their ability to write a nonfiction summary. I use this bundle with ninth graders as a minilesson tool before modeling how to write a nonfiction summary, but it is appropriate for any middle school or high school student.
