Many people take for granted how difficult it is to productively retell a story. This demonstrates a high level of comprehension. Which makes sense, because you can not retell a story that you do not fully understand. When teachers hear a student retell a story it also allows them a glimpse into what students have remembered and they might get an idea as to where students are missing a piece of the story. These worksheets will have students revisit a famous story and ask them to retell it in their own words.
