I ask to students to write a summary of the text on paper. I use this to assess them. For students, this provides practice on their writing skills as well as sharpen their thinking skills. It allows them to sit back and think on their terms then put it all on paper as they understood and synthesized all of the information. I go around the room and ask students to share what they wrote. I believe in using several approaches to understanding text so students can find a way to retain what they have read.
