Over the past week we have been learning a summarizing strategy called GIST. The first step to the GIST is to predict by scanning the page. Then we identify the key words in the paragraph  we write this in 20 words or less this is the GIST.After that we find key words in the second paragraph and combine this with our first GIST together we do this in also 20 words. Finally we find key words  in our third paragraph and combine this with the first two GISTS in 20 words. Repeat if necessary. Link to the post I used for the GIST:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   First GIST:                                                                                                                                   Key words : evidence, humans,catching,archaeological,revels,indicate.                                    GIST : Evidence shows humans have been catching fish since 40,000  years. Archaeological  evidence reveals sea foods were elements of prehistoric diets.

Second GIST :                                                                                                                             Key words: recreational,fishing, variety, processes and catching.                                         GIST: Evidence shows humans have been fishing for years. Recreational fishing is done in many ways. Sea foods are elements of prehistoric diets.

Third GIST                                                                                                                                     Key words: most, people, consider, act and fish.                                                                       GIST:   Sea foods are elements of prehistoric diets. We have been fishing for over 40,000                  years. We fish in different
