To Sum It All Up...

Pupils one main goal when reading is to comprehend, and one strategy to improve reading comprehension is summarization. As students begin reading expository texts, it is vital for them to be able to pick out and summarize the main themes and ideas of texts. This instructional activity equips pupils with summarization tools, and they practice these using an expository article and graphic organizer.
