Dumb it Down -
I know we can't actually say "dumb it down" in school but I ask them to pretend they're telling the story, in just ___ sentences to someone too young to read the whole thing.

A Year from Now -
I ask them what about the story they think they'll remember if next year's teacher asks them whether they read _______? (This helps some kids sort out the important details from the unimportant ones.)
