Teaching Summarization

Examine the process of summarizing a piece of text using the book So You Want to Be a President? Kids review the definitions for main idea, topic sentences, superordinate terms, and supporting details. Next, they work in small groups to summarize sections of the book on to PowerPoint slides that are graded using a rubric. Finally, they complete a worksheet.
