Most Important Words Strategy

Clip to ScrapBook #9

With the students, take a multi-paragraph nonfiction text.

1. Cross out all the articles and conjunctions. Reading sentences aloud, comment that you can still understand the sentence without those words.
2. Continue by crossing out adjectives, adverbs, and other words that aren't essential to the core meaning.
3. Gradually, you will get down to a minimum of words that are used to write the summary.
4. Find synonyms to use so that you are also teaching the importance of writing the summary using your own words.
