Reflection: High Expectations What's a Summary? - Section 2: ACTIVITY

 

Culture for Learning

Despite the hard work required to make the books I feel this activity is well worth it. The students also have a lot of drawing to do so you must make this activity very appealing to the students.

Starting out with drawing and labeling. This gives the students a visual recognition of the events within the story. Now the students can see the beginning, middle and end of a story they can verbalize their summary of the story.

It may be a good idea to record what the student says as it would be an anecdotal record of how the student summarized the story. The student's skill at summarizing should improve over the school year. Repeated opportunities should be proved to reinforce the skill as a student will need to be proficient at summarizing books for a variety of reasons.

Please watch the explanatory video in the activity section of this lesson.
