A summary chart is used to summarize a section of material. It is a visual and should be colour-coded. It should not be more than a single page.

In the example below, there are seven major ideas. Each of theses ideas may be taught in seven specific learning outcomes or they may be seven headings in the content. Using point form, you would summarize each of the seven major ideas.

Note that each major idea is assigned a different colour. This might mean outlining the box in colour rather than writing in colour. Many learners remember the ideas because of the colour that was assigned the individual boxes.
