An effective after-reading strategy is summarizing, which is a difficult skill because it involves the ability to interpret the text and write or paraphrase that information concisely. This organizer guides students through the process of writing a one-paragraph, short-story summary.

Teaching Tips

Show examples of effective and not-so effective summaries. Ask students which ones are better and why. Have students suggest revisions for the not-so-effective summaries and then apply the revision techniques to their own summaries.
