Summary revisited, yet again

Posted 01-01-2011 at 12:12 PM by imalith

Sheesh, summary has me baffled. Our new state test the MSP has two ways to assess summary.

First is by a diagram. This requires topic summary sentence and three details.

Second is written response, no summary sentence, just 3 main events.

Obviously this is inconsistent. Having students write a crappy summary without a topic sentence seems silly to me. Yet, if I teach them to write the topic sentence they will run out of room in the block required for the 3 events.

I've been tweaking my rubric to fit the requirements, yet I feel I need to work on it a bit more.
