    What is this strategy about?
    Ask pupils to apply their knowledge of a tricky concept, theory or idea into a single but complex sentence in a given time. The lack of space and time should result in a creative, inventive sentence.

    What is a one-sentence summary?
    One-sentence summaries, also known as a logine,  condenses a passage into just a sentence. It only communicates essential facts in a simple statement that can be quickly conveyed and understood.

    Why is summarising important?
    Summarising teaches pupils to identify and discern the most important ideas in a text and ignore irrelevant information. This skill is essential for note-taking and researching.
