Summarizing: James and the Giant Peach

Text marking and a T-chart format to distinguish important information from trivia help elementary readers summarize effectively. Encouraging readers to construct a chapter summary from paragraph-level topic sentences is another sound strategy to filter out unnecessary details. In tight economic times, you can't have students highlight the book as suggested; make 1/2-sheet copies of a chapter's first page for readers to mark.
