Friday, August 7th: Summarizing

LEQ: How can technology be used to provide meaningful summative integrated instruction for the lesson or unit?


"Summarizing is when students are stating the main points. Learners must do the summarizing in order to construct meaning and to create a ‘schema’ for the information to remember it longer. At the end of the lesson, the students answer the Essential Question. Teachers use it to assess and determine re-teaching needs. Summarizing should be distributed throughout the lesson and not just at the end (p. 35).”
