Let's face it. Teachers have a love/hate relationship with this strategy. It seems so straight forward to us as readers, but it is difficult to get students to determine importance and generate the main ideas rather than give details! They are all about details!
In this file you will have colorful anchor charts to help students connect learning with lessons
summarizing organizers for students with examples.
I added instructions for students on each organizer, but also included blank templates to use as you like.
I hope you can find this as useful as I have!
See preview for all the pages!
Happy Summarizing! Rachel
