After mastering synthesizing, the student will be able to establish relationships beyond the page, use evidence appropriately, and change perspectives.

  • identify the main details of a story given;
  • determine the theme of a text;
  • retell using his/her ownwords a story;
  • summarize a text;
  • synthetize a text.
