Summarizing, Paraphrasing, and Retelling is a slim, do-it-all guide that presents everything you need for teaching kids to separate out trivial items in their reading and then identify and communicate the main ideas and crucial details. Emily Kissner breaks summarization down into smaller, more manageable skills–such as paraphrasing, writing synopses, retelling, and restating the main-idea–illustrating what good summarization looks like and how to adjust your teaching to fit your students' needs. She offers not only methods for individual and group instruction, but also handy, reproducible resources, such as assessment checklists, forms for group work, peer-response sheets, and sample passages for students to practice with. Best of all, Kissner's approach is a student-centered alternative to more traditional skill-and-drill preparations
