Shorten the Length

Learn how to summarize by identifying main ideas and supporting details. Readers cross out unimportant information as they read through a text. Is it a random detail? Cross it out! They then draw a concept map, placing the main idea in the center and drawing key details around it. Finally, they write a summary paragraph, using the map as a guide.
