How do you define maturity?

The definition of maturity is adulthood, or is the state of being fully developed, or the time when a note is due and payable. The point at which you are fully grown is an example of when you achieve maturity. Showing common sense and making adult decisions is an example of maturity.

Is retelling and summarizing the same thing?

The main difference is that a retell includes everything (main ideas and details) while a summary is more condensed and focused on main ideas. Students paraphrase when they restate information in their own words, which they do when they retell or summarize.

What is in a summary?

A summary begins with an introductory sentence that states the text’s title, author and main point of the text as you see it. A summary is written in your own words. A summary contains only the ideas of the original text. Do not insert any of your own opinions, interpretations, deductions or comments into a summary.
