The Skill of Summary
Students, there were so many examples of great work on Summary, a Unit Goal for Reader's Workshop. Check out three things: 1) some great student note taking (processing pictures before text); 2) an Example of Summary from Patty in 6th period (Way to Go, Patty!) and finally what the State of Washington has to say about the Skill of Summary. Can you spot how many ways Patty's work aligned with the State Standard? Questions for you. Why is Summary Important? How will this Skill apply to your life, especially in a Digital Age where there is so much information overload?
