Summarizing Fiction Strategy

Somebody- Who is the Main character(s)
Wanted- What did they want? what was their goal?
But- What interfered with that goal? (Conflict)
So- What did they do to try and resolve that conflict?
Then- Resolution- how did the story end?

TIP: You must introduce the title and author of the text when writing a summary. If their is no author, do not include it.

 ***Your SWBST needs to be in paragraph form when handed in. 

Challenge yourself!! Use transition words!
"But" could be replaced with: However
"So" could be replaced with: Furthermore 
"Then" could be replaced with: Consequently, as a result, or therefore
Identifying Theme:

Theme: theme is the overall message of a story. (Moral or lesson being taught)

Theme should not be ONE world. Theme is ONE sentence.

Examples of themes:
-Never give up
-Do good to others and have good done to you
-Home is where the heart is

How can we find the conflict? Ask yourself the following questions:

What were the conflicts?
What were the resolutions?
How did the characters change?
What did the characters learn?
