For this example, I chose 6 simple pages from a book titled Organisms. The pages were about the life cycle of a plant. Below shows how you can use the strategy.
But wait! That’s not the end! A couple of days later, have students write that synthesizing sentence at the top of the page in their science notebooks. Then, the other 6 ideas become their own sentence that can be expanded on and added to, once again reinforcing the important information. Then, students can add a closing sentence that connects the information again.
