Wish I knew about this before I took the GRE

Summarization Strategy called "the incredible shrinking notes". Students start out writing a summary of a reading selection on the large index card. Students are then given the medium sized card and have to take the information from the large card and condense it onto the medium sized card. Finally, students are given the small card and must take the information from the medium sized card and condense it further onto the small card. Great way for students to get to the main point/idea!

For all my teacher friends-repin!!! Books listed by reading strategy - inferring, synthesizing, making connections, etc.

I wish someone would have taught me this a long time ago so I would remember gallons, quarts, pints, and cups! For the visual learner
