For this activity you are to read your section in its entirety and do the following:

  1. Rewrite/paraphrase your section IN YOUR OWN WORDS (meaning if it’s a word you would never ever ever use, you don’t need to use it in your rewording)
    1. Keep in mind your rewrite will be shorter than the original, as you are basically just “saying what it says”
  2. Create a glossary for your section
    1. The length may vary depending on your section, but include words you did not know or had to look up as well as words you think others would have to look up (3-7 words more than likely)
  3. Create some sort of representation of your section
    1. Newsarticle-must include who, what, when, where, why
