Wednesday: September 21 (The day we started Summary Material)

Cerdá, 2

Run down: After the category game and writing for 10 minutes, students will list all the items

they think they know about summary writing on the LINK organizer. Using Talk to the Text,

they will then read the informative piece of text that the mentor text was based off of for

comprehension. Students will share with shoulder partners and small group before sharing out

large group. If time permits, they will then read the mentor summary for comprehension as well.

To do:

*Note to self- Pass out papers & collect homework.

1. Category Game

-We are stepping it up a bit. We are now giving that the details are along with the subtopic, but

we are not saying what the topic is.

Assessment: Monitoring, group sharing

Thursday: September 22

Run down: After the sponge, they will then share out issues that created a roadblock in terms of

comprehension and then read the mentor summary for writer’s craft. Students will use Talk to

the Text to surface observations about writer’s craft. Once finished, students, in groups, will

categorize their annotations by content, organization, style, and writing conventions. These

annotations will aid in charting elements of a summary, so the students have a starting point for

writing their own summaries. If time permits, we will begin charting the elements and revisiting

their LINK organizer.

To do:

-10 minutes to do 3 parts.

They started off easy but now it is getting harder; more challenging.

Wednesday: September 28

Run down: After the category game and writing for 10 minutes, students will each be given an

article to read for comprehension using Talk to the Text. The focus for the Talk to the Text will

Homework: IVF observation sheet, original IVF topic sentence

Assessment: Monitoring groups, IVF observation sheets, written IVF topic sentence

Tuesday: October 4

Run down: After the sponge and modeling, students will highlight each summary sentence in a

color and then highlight where the information from that sentence came from within the text.

Goal: I want students to notice that each sentence in the summary is a one-sentence summary of

a paragraph/chunk of the text and that it follows the order of the text. Next, as a class, we will

practice creating one-sentence summaries for the class text on “Popcorn’s Dark Secret” article

using the content frame organizer and TttT. Students will TttT and then work with shoulder

partner and small group to determine what parts of the paragraph/chunk should be included in

the one-sentence summary and what parts are extra information. They will then create a one-

sentence summary together for the class text. If time permits, students will begin chunking their

text and composing one-sentence summaries for their text.

To do:

1. Summary verbs

-Two minutes to finish individually (except for A5)

2. IVF summary #1

-For “Popcorn’s Dark Secret” students will, individually, write a full topic sentence. They cannot

use “inform” as their verb.

-Red chair starts by sharing their sentence; their group offers help if they sort of miss the mark.

4. Group summary

-Students have 2-3 minutes to come up with the best parts of each member’s sentences and use

them to create a new sentence summary.

the door; if it is not done, it is homework.

6. Explain steps 5 & 6 for “Steps We Use When Writing a Summary”

Step 5= chunk the information if it is not already done

^Model chunking

Step 6= compose a one-sentence summary for each chunk

^Model sentence summary for chunk
