Ask students to summarize and they will volunteer to copy pages out of the dictionary or take out the trash instead. In the 21st century, however, students not only have to know facts—they must be skilled information managers as well. They must get the main idea as well as the supportive details, the principle argument as well as its evidence. Marzano (2011) and others have identified summarization as one of the nine most effective teaching strategies of all time. One of the greatest gifts we can teach students then, is how to distill salient information, no matter what subject we teach or how it’s presented. Summarization is one of very few strategies that ensure long term retention of student learning.  This workshop presents dozens of updated, practical, and innovative (and for some, tech-infused!) summarization techniques for all subject areas, even those not typically associated with language arts. It makes the case for summarizing in every lesson, not just those lessons in which we finish a few minutes early. Material for this session is based on the presenter's internationally best-selling book, ASCD's Summarization in Any Subject: 60 Innovative, Tech-Infused Strategies for Deeper Student Learning (2019). Don't miss it!
