SIM Fundamentals in Paraphrasing & Summarizing Strategy

Target Audience: Teachers in grades 4-12 that are responsible for reading instruction or learning strategies instruction.  


Prerequisite: The materials provided for this strategy are best suited for use with students that read at a minimum of 4th grade.


One way that good readers make sure they understand and remember what they read is to paraphrase it or summarize it. In order to put information into their own words or summarize it, they distill it down to its most important points.

This program helps students do just that. They learn to identify the topic, main ideas, and details of a passage, and they learn to translate them into their own words. This program includes 14 lessons that build on one another in a step-by-step fashion. For example, students first learn to paraphrase words, then phrases, then sentences.


Implementation Activity: A follow up satisfaction survey & progress monitoring student pre- and post- data are required prior to receiving 12 inservice credits. This strategy can take up to 14 weeks to implement.


Follow Up Method: Email communication and coaching throughout the implementation period, as well as on-site coaching (per participant request) will be available.
