This summarizing activity is a new and fun way to engage and challenge your students to improve their ability to summarize a fictional text like a short story or a novel. The resource includes everything you need to teach summarizing and practice using a fun escape room style challenge.
Included in your purchase:
  • A teacher presentation that shares information on what it means to summarize a fictional piece with practical strategies and examples.
  • An original narrative backstory that puts students within the story and sets up the escape room challenge.
  • A presentation to guide the lesson and activity with instructional slides, activity prompts, the narrative story text, the story conclusion slides, and an answer key for easy review.
  • An interactive escape-room style challenge where students must use their summarizing skills to complete the challenge.
How it works:
  • Start by using the presentation slides to guide you through each element of the lesson and activity. The slides will help you teach summarizing, introduce the story and challenge, and review the answers.
  • Read the narrative story as a class to hook students and introduce the challenge.
  • Once you taught the TOPIC skills and read the story, students are ready to try the escape-room style reading challenge!
  • When students successfully solve the challenge, you can share the conclusion slides which will wrap up the narrative story.
