Science Book Summary

Create an outline, then write a summary on the science book you have chosen. (What was the book about? What did you learn? What does this information mean to you?)

Outlines may be typed or hand-written and need to be formatted correctly.

Outline will be graded on the following characteristics:
- green is clear and correct
- yellows support green
- yellows are key ideas, not too specific
- each color supports previous color, all lead to green
- no repeated information
- rule of five followed
- avoid unnecessary words
- number of light pinks
- appropriate formatting

Summaries need to be typed and should be between 3/4 and 1 page long, single spaced. If you choose to double space your paper, it should be between 1 1/2 and 2 pages. 

Summary will be graded on the following characteristics:
- Name it, verb it, big picture (green)
- key ideas support green
- clearly summarizes entire book
- no concluding green
- avoid overuse of pronouns
- no duplicate facts
- organized, transitions used, well-written
- appropriate length and formatting

Depending on what you would like to include in your summary, it can be more than one paragraph.

We will only have one day in class to work on this. That means you must do most of the work on you own time.
