Product Description
Summarizing nonfiction texts can be somewhat daunting for both students and teachers alike. It's pretty simple to teach students how to write a fictional summary. Just break it down by the plot. When it comes to nonfiction, non-narrative texts, it's not so black and white.

The materials in this product (which are also included in my Summarizing Nonfiction Text Bundle available through my store) will help you to break down the process of summarizing nonfiction in a sensible manner. I have included a suggested lesson plan, worksheets to accompany two visual texts (news articles) about fat letters and an amazingly literate baby, and a worksheet for any print article of your choice.

If you are looking for a manageable way to teach reading comprehension and written summarizing of nonfiction texts, you will find this package extremely useful.
