This Common Core reading informational text lesson asks students to analyze how an author's ideas are developed and refined. In this lesson, students will identify the development of an idea in terms of claims and supporting details. Then, they will analyze how the author refines his ideas by expanding on his support of the claim. In addition to the initial lesson, there are numerous pages of Independent Practice and Review with questions modeled after Common Core assessment items.
