Three-Two-One Is A Simple & Effective Summarizing Strategy

By:Larry Ferlazzo

teachhI previously tweeted and posted a link to an excellent piece by Ekuwah Moses titled 3-2-1 and The Common Core Writing Book. In it, she shares a simple summarizing exercise she uses where people identify three words, two phrases and one complete quote from a text. I’d strongly encourage you to read what she has to say about it.

I suspect that many teachers have been using a version of this for awhile, but I hadn’t. Since I learned about it, I’ve had both my World History and United States History English Language Learners use a slightly modified version for a chapter in our textbooks.” To read further please click here:
