In their own words, students explain, interpret and provide a short outline of the concepts covered in an external resource.

The aim of summarising an external resource is to provide students with an opportunity to demonstrate their understanding of the content of a resource. Identifying and connecting concepts discussed in a resource and using skills like paraphrasing to explain them requires students to explore a resource in depth. Summaries can be recorded as part of the student's notes or shared with the class. This activity will work well as a group or class activity or to cover several resources.
