Summarization in Any Subject: 50 Techniques to Improve Student Learning
Wormeli, Rick
Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development
According to research, summarization is one of the top nine most effective teaching strategies, but teachers often under use this technique because they think summarization is for written assignments only. Here's a practical guide to written, spoken, artistic, and kinesthetic summarization techniques for individual assignments and group activities--just the thing to make it much easier and a lot more fun to use summarization on a regular basis throughout the curriculum. Explore 50 time-tested summarization strategies and get all the steps and clear examples you need to start using summarization to improve students' comprehension and boost their long-term memory. The book is divided into three parts: (1) The Case for Summarization; (2) Summarization Savvy; and (3) Summarization Techniques. The following is appended: (1) Sample Texts and Summarization Practice Activities.
