I've been using the IVF summarizing strategy for a while now, and I love it. The strategy itself isn't new. What I've included is an easy-to-use set that is ready to go! I've included suggestions for you, instructions for your students, a prewriting sheet, and an academic vocabulary page; I've also included three scoring options for you to decide based on your goal--whether summative or formative, whether for a grade or not--three different rubrics for you to decide what is right for your group. I think you'll find it useful...and a relatively painless way for students to practice this very important skill.
