Our Story Retelling lesson plan introduces students to strategies for retelling stories in an effective way. Being able to retell information is an important academic and social skill. During this lesson, students are asked to read a story carefully and then re-tell it to a partner, taking care to recall key details and keep the story in the correct order. Students are also asked to read a story and rewrite it, again keeping key details and the correct order.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to orally retell stories, and also provide written retelling, also known as a synopsis. Students will also be able to identify a purpose for retelling.
