You can find a chart your students can work on to write a summary of any informational text. It helps students understand what they have to include in their summary and what they need to focus on when writing a summary. It has some sentence starters for a topic sentence and a concluding sentence. Then, you will find a sample article you can use to work with your students, and an article they will work on their own with the help of a chart. Students will benefit by working on this activity! They will feel more comfortable when summarizing anything they have read or watched.
