Summarizing

Summarizing, Paraphrasing, and Retelling
My first book, published in 2006. This explains how readers summarize, the importance of teaching summarizing skills, and the connections between summarizing and paraphrasing.

I love making materials for the classroom. This packet includes 30 items for teaching paraphrasing and summarizing, including 5 texts, an assessment, and a rubric. (I just couldn't stop adding materials!)
