This PowerPoint has 51 slides defining and giving examples of the most common reading skills: main idea & details, author's purpose, point of view, inference, context clues, word relationships, summarizing & paraphrasing, figurative language, plot, foreshadowing, theme, and more! The presentation includes examples for students to work out themselves!
This presentation works best when teaching in mini-lessons and not all at once (which would probably overwhelm the students).
This PPt. was a life-saver for the students (and me!) when it came to review time for standardized reading tests!
