5CNN Student News - Summarizing You will need to write a summary on only ONE of the news stories from that day.I will be looking for 2-4 sentence summaries.SHORT & SWEET!You CANNOT choose the very last story or the Shout Out!
6Summarizing CNN Student News SUGGESTION: DO NOT try to write a complete sentence summary while watching the news.1st : Decide which news segment you want to summarizeSince you do not know before what the topic is this means you need to FOCUS while the news is playing2nd : Only write short bullets even one word statements of information you get from the segment3rd : Then organize your thoughts from these short or one word statements into what the segment was about – TA DA a SUMMARY!
7CNN Student News – Two More Points IDEA to help you Summarize:ALWAYS be thinking of Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How while watching the segment in order to look for information you should be writing down!Where are you keeping these Summaries?:In Section 1 of your student binder on your lined paperShould be able to use one sheet front and back per weekEach day HAS to be Labeled:Example: Tuesday 9/2/2014
