Student Instructions

Readers are Leaders!

After reading a book from OverDrive, write a book summary OR verbally summarize your book. "How to write a book summary: 1. Annotate the text as you read. 2. Write notes while you’re reading. 3. Keep a running list of the main characters. 4. Break the book down into sections. 5. Identify the main point of each section. 6. Determine the book’s one key idea. 7. Write the summary in chronological order. 8. Describe the major plot points and characters. 9. Explain the main points of the book’s sections. 10. Conclude by stating the book’s key idea. Writing a summary of a book is a great way for you to absorb what you’re reading. It also gives you a quick reference you can use to remember the main points of the book anytime you need it. To write a good summary, read the book carefully while taking notes on important ideas, plot twists, and main characters. You can then use your notes to draft and then proofread your awesome summary!" https://www.wikihow.com/Write-a-Book-Summary
