Comprehending Informational Text: Summarizing

Read, retell, paraphrase, and condense. A brief lecture outlines these steps in writing a summary of an informational text. Learners then examine a short passage and the provided summary. This resource could be used as the basis or a mini-instructional activity, given to class members who missed the original instructional activity, or as review. For independent practice, class members could be asked to summarize a passage from a textbook.
