I've Got It Covered! Creating Magazine Covers to Summarize Texts - ReadWriteThink - 34 views

  • Students can improve their comprehension of content area textbooks by summarizing chapters in the form of magazine covers. The lesson begins by asking students to examine a magazine and discuss the ways in which the magazine cover's headlines and graphics express the main ideas of its articles.
    This activity uses the concept of identifying main idea in informational text to create magazine covers. The purpose is comprehension can be enhanced when readers actively relate the ideas presented in print to their own knowledge and experiences and craft visual representations to make meaning.
