Are you looking for a quick and easy way to introduce the Common Core State Standards that address Key Ideas in Informational Text? If so, then this is the presentation for you. There are four lessons packaged together here, in addition to an introduction to them all. You will find lessons on, "Asking Questions About Key Ideas," "Finding Main Ideas and Details," Reading about Time and Sequence," and "Describing Cause and Effect." The lessons are designed to open a week, or more, of study into a particular standard; and serve as a springboard to learning. They are visual, interactive, and thoughtfully designed.
