The short video clip shows how to teach students summarizing through mind mapping.

Fast Facts Summarizing and notetaking are high-impact strategies that support student learning. In order to maximize the benefits, teachers must give explicit instruction in summarizing and notetaking by modeling identifying key concepts, listing bullets, making outlines, writing journal summaries, breaking down assignments, creating simple reports, doing quick writes, filling graphic organizers, etc.

Effective summarizing and notetaking is much more than simply writing down words or prhases verbatim. It's about putting information into your own words in your context.

Students who can effectively summarize learn to synthesize information, which includes analyzing information, identifying key concepts, and defining extraneous information.
