Students will learn to write summary paragraphs of new articles. On Fridays, students will participate in lessons to learn the Step Up to Writing process. Students will read articles, complete vocabulary cards using the Frayer Model, and learn to identify the main idea and supporting details of a piece of nonfiction text. By the end of the semester, students will be able to independently write summary paragraphs using these strategies. The complete directions and rubrics are available below in English and Spanish.
