Educators agree that the ability to summarize-to identify salient information and structure it for meaning, long-term retention, and successful application-is an essential academic skill. Research affirms summarization's reputation as a highly effective way to boost comprehension and achievement. We know summarization works. But isn't it, well, just a little dull? It doesn't have to be. Rick Wormeli, a teacher certified by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, makes the case that summarization is not only one of the most effective ways to improve student learning, it's also one of the most flexible, responsive, and engaging. Here, you'll find a classroom-tested collection of written, spoken, artistic, and kinesthetic summarization techniques for both individual assignments and group activities across the content areas. Suitable for students in grades 3-12, these techniques are easily adjustable to any curriculum and presented with ample directions and vivid, multidisciplinary examples. They are valuable additions to every teacher's repertoire. Wormeli also clarifies the process of teaching students how to summarize and includes a special section on the key skill of paraphrasing. The book concludes with an assortment of original text excerpts and activity prompts-a great starting place for teachers ready to use summarization in their own classrooms.

important facts in education

An old theory in education says that summarization is an important instrument in determining students to be reflective and analytical. This theory is revived by Rick Wormeli in his book called Summarization in Any Subject: 50 Techniques to Improve Student Learning. He explains 50 strategies that are suitable for any area of study that will improve the student’s academic skills, so important in his higher education years. The sad thing about this book is that it is targeted to already open-minded teachers that are aware of these important facts in education, and not to those teachers in developing countries which need to upgrade from their old methods of teaching.
