Summarizing Reading, Writing and Research strategy pack
Summarizing is one of the key Reading Comprehension and Writing Strategies. If students can use the summarizing strategies of identifying keywords, recognizing the big idea and then writing a summary of what they have read, then that enables you to see how well the student comprehends the written text. This is an important research strategy as well, so at the same time you will be teaching your students valuable research skills.
This activity pack is designed to help students to make sense of the summarizing strategy through informative posters and interesting activities.

The Summarizing Reading Strategy Activity pack can be printed out, posters and some of the worksheets can be laminated, and worksheets printed and shared with students.

As an added bonus, teachers and students who have (Google Apps for Education) Google accounts can click on the shared links and use the worksheets and Graphic Organizers in Google Slides.
