Reflection: Joy Michelle Kwan: Summarizing Informational Text - Section 2: Teaching Strategy

 

Scholars LOVED this exploration!  Pretty much all of the scholars were able to identify that the movie trailer was strong because it got viewers interested in the movie without explaining the ENTIRE video.  Scholars were very easily able to translate this concept to summarizing a text.  They completely understood that summaries should be brief and only include the most important information. 

  Loved it!
