After reading any short informational or fictional text, ask your class to analyze the important events. They note down three important events on a short timeline, describing the events with either words or drawings. After this, pupils select the most important event an explain why it is significant.
- Since there are only three events possible, learners will have to choose carefully and only pick the most important aspects of a text
- While the task does require analysis and explanation, the worksheet is very simple overall and could be improved upon
- Many learners will need additional scaffolding to complete the page; consider sentence frames or partner work
