Step 2 rewrite the chunks in your own words. By the end of the reading, a reader should have a summarized version of the text. It might be interesting to try to limit the summary to 20 words or to try and draw a picture of the summary instead of writing one. Whatever a reader decides to do be sure to include important vocabulary.
Step three review the summarized version of the text. A reader should read the summarized version and ask themselves questions to be sure all important information was included. A reader can also compare summarized versions with other readers. This is especially helpful for tests.
