One-Sentence Summary

The one-sentence summary is one of the proven classroom assessment tools. The teacher challenges the students to answer the questions “Who does what to whom, when, where, how, and why?” These questions are based on a given topic, and the teacher synthesizes the answers given by students into a simple, formative, grammatical, and single long summary sentence. It is easy to remember and memorize, and helps to recapture the major concepts of the lesson subjects.
