Product Description

You tell students “Write a summary of (blank)” and you end up with one sentence versions that cover nothing, novel descriptions that tell everything, and some that manage to fall right in between that range. I wanted to find a way to make writing a summary easier and more uniformed for my students and in so doing make it easier for me to gauge their comprehension. Using the mnemonic SWBST (Someone-Wanted-But-So-Then), I created an outline that students could use to write summaries for works of fiction. And it was a success!

This download includes a powerpoint that breaks down that outline for students to write summaries for book blogs, book projects, formative assessments, study guides… the list of uses goes on and on. Students receive guidance in writing a summary that is a good length and covers the proper amount of content. As Goldilocks would say, it’s just right.
