Close Reading Strategies: Summarization and Question Formulation By: Kenneth Sanders 10/10/2019

Learning Objectives:

Learning Objectives Students will be able to summarize what author is saying and doing- this strategy will help with formulation of enriching questions that will establish new lines of inquiry for the reader. Students will be able to formulate their own questions in response to sections of text.

Purpose:

Purpose Today we will be talking about a few skills that will improve reading and allow for a closer analysis of text. Students will learn how to summarize sections of text using different strategies. Students will learn how to formulate questions from summary of text directing them to establish new lines of inquiry about the text.

Saying: Example and Introduction:

Saying: Example and Introduction Before you begin make sure you break down the text into chunks by paragraph or section. On the left column write down in a few words what the author is saying in that section.

Summarizing by describing what the author is doing :

Summarizing by describing what the author is doing On the right column of the section you will be using a few words to describe what the writer is doing. Are they using certain appeals to the reader? Use adjectives to describe. Notice there is a line breaking up the sections, this is important in organizing your reading.

After summarizing each section you will develop questions :

After summarizing each section you will develop questions It is important that you summarize the literary work using the strategies outlined first, because it helps you better understand what is going on and think critically about the piece. Next you will be underlining areas you have questions about and write those questions in the margins. The most important thing to remember when asking question is there is no right or wrong kind of question. The purpose of creating questions is to extend your learning and inquiry of the text.

Develop one or more open ended questions :

Develop one or more open ended questions After you have completed the saying and doing columns you can develop some questions, these are meant to focus on areas you don’t understand or want to inquire more about. Here is an example of a question you could have.

Summary Question:

Summary Question After summarizing the entire literary work and creating several questions on different sections of the text, you should have a better understanding of the overarching theme or message of the text. Create a question that addresses the entire text. For this example I created 2 questions (in the next slide)
