3 Books and Lessons to Teach Summarizing

Hi There!


Looking for ideas on how to teach students all about summarizing as they read books?  Check out the three mini lesson statements and watch the video to get more ideas on how to teach summarizing with three specific books. 




Here is a chart with three mini lesson statements and examples of how to frame your whole class discussion.  Fill out your charts with these organizers as you discuss each book with the class!










Queen of the Falls is a fascinating true story of courage and bravery as one woman makes the daring and illegal decision to put herself inside a barrel and go over Niagara Falls!




Ralph Tells a Story is a great book to help young writers who struggle.  Every student has a story to write, and Ralph learns this by the end of the book. 



The Librarian of Basra: A True Story from Iraq is a true story of a librarian who hides all the books in her hometown library 9 days before troops burn the building down.
