Objective: Students write a 3 - 5 sentence summary of each news article they read. How will students respond to these summaries?
Phase 1: Just summaries
Phase 2: students respond to each other and respond with their opinions about the summary (ie, do they agree with what was reported on? what questions do they have?
Phase 3: Students write their own summary and then provide deeper interpretation/comments/critique and students respond to each other.
