A very practical book that looks at summarizing from a VERY broad perspective. I liked the introductory chapters that explain summarizing, but the bulk of the book is ideas for classroom activities that provide students with opportunities to learn (that's what I mean about a broad perspective). One thing I really liked was Wormelli's idea that summaries don't have to be written. He uses a lot of physical movement and graphic organizers or art in addition to oral and written summarizing ideas.

Recommends it for: Teachers
I loved this book and found it to be a great reference to have in the classroom. Our school principal recommended it and I took lots of notes. It has some great strategies to use in the class on a daily basis. If you're looking for help with summarization strategies in the classroom this is a realistic aid.

Very accessible strategies. Organized effectively. Each strategy is between 1-4 pages. Easy to skim and implement the next day.

Great resource for using summarization (a proven instructional strategy) in the classroom. Most of these are easy to use.
