  • Readers use the comprehension strategy of summarising to identify the main points or events of a story or article. Summarising these “in their own words” helps readers to make links between these ideas or events within the text, as well as to use texts for specific purposes.

  • Note: there are some texts where summarising is not appropriate because the text already comprises the main points, with no supporting detail (for example the lists on pages 7 and 17 in Collections 6).
