Determine the main idea of a text and explain how it is supported by key details; summarize the text.
Describe the overall structure (e.g., chronology, comparison, cause/effect, problem/solution) of events, ideas, concepts, or information in a text or part of a text.
Take a peek into my reading class. Students have been working on close reading non-fiction texts. Students identify important details, determine the main idea, and work as a team to determine the text structure utilized within the passage. Literature circles require discussion and collaboration. I could not be more proud of my kids and all their hard work.
