Using these graphic organizers, students will be able to transfer and organize the facts and evidence they've gathered from a non-fiction article in one place before they develop their actual paragraph.
This PDF file includes the following:
-Four page lesson page describing the process I've taken in using these documents and materials with my students
-Marked and unmarked non-fiction article "Chocolate Has a Dark Side"
-Blank "Summary Preparation" and "Summary Construction" graphic organizers
-Answer Guides (Example Answers using the "Chocolate Has a Dark Side" article) to the "Summary Preparation" and "Summary Construction" graphic organizers.
*If these materials and lessons serve you well, please see my other lessons and resources on Summaries, Main Ideas, Supporting Details, etc. There are several graphic organizers, Power Points and activities that I've used prior to this lesson and could be of use to you, as well.
