Clip to ScrapBook #5

If you google somebody wanted but so then, you’ll find a ton of resources. I also teach the plot diagram and have students identify key info for each element and write 1-2 sentences each. This turns it into a 7-9 sentence paragraph with a logical summary. I find this works better for novels than the somebody wanted method.

For non fiction texts, we look for topic sentences, headers, repeated information, and conclusions to identify the key W’s. The main idea is our topic sentence and then we simplify the support.
