Product Description
This resource provides 17 texts for summarizing in various different ways.

Point form / list exercises are blended with paragraph writing activities.

Passages vary in length from 350 to 950 words. In longer texts the summary comes out of a portion or relates to a specific aspect of the passage for reading.

Most are 7 point summaries with 3 marks available for language use and expression but some are list form and some are rubric-based assessments.

Sentences for precis are included with suggested responses.

Passages are designed to appeal to teens for the most part but there are some unusual exercises to stretch those topic sentence searching and organization of information muscles in the brain.

These summaries can be completed in class as activities, for homework, for tests or as diagnostic assessments. A good opportunity to practice precis skills.
