What is GIST?
  • Gist is a comprehension strategy that is used
    both during reading and after reading. It is one
    approach to summarizing a text. When using GIST,
    students create summaries that are 20 words or
    less for increasingly large amounts of text.
  • The end product is a 20 word summary that is
    tight and precise.

3
How does it work?
  • 1. Define what the "gist" of something is.
  • 2. Read the first paragraph/section of the
    assigned reading. The size of the section will
    depend upon the grade level and size of the
    complete text.
  • 3. Write a 20 word summary that describes the
    main idea in that section.
  • 4. Read the second paragraph/section of the
    assigned reading.
  • 5. Write a 20 word summary that combines the
    material in the first gist statement and the new
    material.
  • 6. Continue this procedure until a 20 word
    summary is created for the entire reading.

4
How can GIST be used in your class?
  1. Use as a class warm up to review the previous
    days learning.
  2. Use as during the middle of the day to summarize
    key concepts learned already.
  3. Use as a TOTD to summarize learning for the day.
  4. Assign with reading homework, showing evidence of
    what the student has learned while completing the
    reading assignment.

5
How can GIST be used in your class?
  • 5. Assign as a formative assessment to evaluate
    learning.
  • 6. Assign a GIST on your summative assessment.
  • 7. Increase the number of words you want to use
    in your GIST until students get the hang of it.

6
Final Thoughts
  • If your students are reluctant to new strategies,
    consider using GIST with a fun topic to get them
    use to the idea of condensing their thoughts.
  • AVID II Students GIST Three Little Bears
  • Three pigs built houses of straw, stick and
    brick. The brick house survived, the others were
    destroyed by the wolf.
