PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Overview: Note-taking, or paraphrasing, is defined as taking the words of another and putting those words or ideas into your own words. Paraphrasing for comprehension is writing those ideas to learn material presented. Using all the modes of communication - reading, writing, listening, and speaking - students better understand and learn the context of both the written and oral word. This unit will teach students to focus on main idea and details, find important concepts, and identify the author's voice by learning to web, outline, and use graphic organizers to better comprehend and elaborate content.

Graphic organizers to use with the unit are the following:

The Important Word Page

Spider Web
