Summary Writing

Hey everyone, this is Nicole from Teaching with Style!

My school uses the DRA II to assess student growth in reading.  In order to pass most of the levels, students have to do an oral retell and a written retell once they get to levels above 2nd grade.   To help my students do well with the retell, I teach summarization throughout the entire curriculum.  We summarize vocabulary definitions in math, research articles in science, and even each other's stories when we share during writing.

I made this summarization sheet to go with my reading adoption, Houghton Mifflin Reading.  There is a blank worksheet and a sample sheet filled out with information from The Ballad of Mulan.
