Erasing the Extras

Readers practice the strategy of summarization to understand text better. They assess how to delete trivial information and summarize important information found in text. They study summarizing and deleting trivial information from the sentence, "Charles was walking to school in the rain, on Friday, when he dropped his green folder in the grass." Great practice, but not a lot of detail to the activity.
