Five Finger Summary Method?

I am drawing a blank!!!! What is the five finger summary method? Not the one for finding a "just right" book, but for summarizing text.

Who? Where? Beginning. Middle. End.
I think that I've even seen posters with this, one idea written on each finger, (same ideas as above?) and a heart in the palm, for the "heart" of the author's message.
