Story Summary
« on: May 01, 2010, 06:37:34 PM »
I found many interesting reading and writing strategies and materials in the below website. On the bottom of the webpage, it offers a story summary method. The author created a framework of "Somebody, Wanted, But, So, Then Summary" and suggested using it to summerize a story. I think this frame of summary is not only effective for teaching kids how to summarize and paraphase but also helpful when teaching conjunctions.   

I added an idea of using the "Somebody, Wanted, But, So, Then Summary". Please see attachment. Also, you can find the "frame of the summary" there, just in case the URL change.
