Description

The ability to summarize is the ability to understand the material presented, to see how parts fit together to make a whole. All teachers can ask their students to summarize daily. By giving students a wheel, a formula, and a writing chart, they will quickly learn how to write well-developed summaries in any subject.

All teachers are writing and reading teachers, and students need help in summarizing skills whether it be a physical education video, science chapter, poem, play, short story, novel, newspaper article, or TV show. By showing students how to summarize, teachers will be able to see if the pupils understand the material.

Students will be able to do the following:
* brainstorm using the SQ3R method
* complete a graphic organizer (the wheel)
* write a well-developed summary using complete sentences
* proofread their work
* use a rubric to evaluate their work

The PDF contains the following:
* step-by-step instructions
* example with answer key
* topics for subject-specific writing assignments
* handouts that explain the writing process

Materials align to the Common Core standards.
