Summarising the Main Idea

Summarising the Main Idea

L.I. To look for keywords and phrases

Good readers notice key words.  Here are some clues to help you find key words:
  • Key words are directly connected to the topic
  • Key words are often repeated in the title and the text
  • A key word helps you to remember an important idea
Use this table to help you summarise the main ideas in a text in your own words.  It is important that you use your own words to show your understanding and to avoid plagiarism.  If you don’t know what some words mean, look them up.

Keywords from the title

Keywords from sub headings
New words I need to look up

Read the text and record key words/phrases that answer these questions:

A stupendous storm washed three containers away
Hong Kong to Tacoma, Washington in the United States
January 1992
yellow ducks, blue turtles and green frogs
One container spilled its contents into the sea
Stupendous storm Blowed the 3 containers away from the ship

Now using the words you wrote down summarise the text in 25 words or less.

Day 4 Bonus

Bonus:  The New Zealand Olympic Team has created a video called #Be The Inspiration. They have posted it on the homepage of their website (on the left hand side). Watch the Be the Inspiration video and then post a critique of the video on your blog. In your critique tell us what you liked about the video and what you didn’t like. It is very common for movie reviewers to use stars to indicate how much they liked a movie. A rating of * = very bad movie, ** = bad movie, *** = okay movie, **** = good movie, and ***** = very good movie. At the end of your critique, please provide a rating for the Be The Inspiration movie.

A) In my words, in the beginning with the STARS the southern cross tomorrow hold thomma have benning watching. The land was  founded on poll number linking the heavens to open united inder the silver fern even they siad above us there are no sky

Day 1 Bonus Activity

The ancient Olympics had fewer events than the modern games, and only freeborn Greek men were allowed to participate
It was possible for the winner to be a woman in official games from early on. This was likely because she was not physically competing, she was just the owner of the chariot. Women, like many athletes of their time, typically came from well known and wealthy families.
first woman to be listed as an Olympic victor
