Somebody Wanted But So

“Somebody Wanted But So” is not my original idea.

Somebody Wanted But So can be used to help students summarize and understand the books they read. Make four columns, one for each word.

Somebody = a character.

Wanted = want they wanted (obviously).

But = the problem/why the person didn’t get what he/she wanted.

So = what happened because of that problem.

This could be used in book reports, instead of book reports, to teach summarizing, and to just help students better understand a text. Because the pieces are broken down and easy to manage, it’s good for ELLs (so I am told).
