Creating engaging summaries

Summarizing requires students to determine what is important in the text. Paraphrasing requires them to translate the text into their own words. Manipulating the text helps students remember what they read because it requires them to:

  • Identify or generate main ideas
  • Connect the main or central ideas
  • Eliminate unnecessary information
