Summarizing And All That Jazz
Tell students to get in pairs- they have been predetermined according to lexile scores- and find an article on the website that they would enjoy reading. Each pair of students will be required to analyze, summarize, and create a presentation on their article.
Using Newsela, you will find a current issues article that intrigues you. Skeptically consider the accuracy of the article and its source and read it over with a partner. Be able to answer questions and have in-depth discussion with your partner abot the article. Then, create a presentation (format of your choosing) and share your presentation with the class. Each presentation should last from 5-10 minutes and should cover the most relevant parts of the article, sequence the events, and have your response or opinion on the issue.
