Sum It Up!

Get your learners to identify that the purpose of reading is comprehension. They summarize what strategies are useful for them to use to help them comprehend the text. They also identify the three things that are important with summarizing: getting rid of unnecessary or repeated information, finding the most important items or events, and writing a statement that is reflective of the author's purpose.

It's great. Teaching an adult esl class means finding appropriate materials for older women. I can use any or most of these lessons for the beginning intermediate women after I check the topic of the worksheet.
