Students and e-textbooks
(FREE) This printable paper is great for whenever you are ready to publish any of the fantastic writing that you have been working on class and would like something a little snazzier than just plain notebook paper. There is also a nice blank area at the top for students to add a fancy title of their choosing.
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!
