Skill 5.1 Writing a Summary
These activities, produced by Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme, help students to consider the best way to write an abstract or a short summary.
The activity is a useful learning tool as it enables students to:
* organise learning materials and texts.
* understand and remember information.
* focus on the most important pieces of information or concepts.
* highlight and remember key points.
A range of articles, on different subjects, are included as stimulus material which students can use in the activity.
