Clip to ScrapBook #6

I've used the somebody wanted but so method but usually in the lower grades. I find it lends itself less well with my fifth graders who work with complex texts. By that I mean, I'd have a hard time using that structure to summarize a text like Harry Potter or Bridge to Terabithia.
I approach it usually through having kids reflect upon the characters and the problems they face in the story. They describe the characters, their problems and the resolution of those problems.
