This presentation is designed to achieve three goals: increase student engagement, improve students' reading comprehension, and make your job easier! The lesson begins with direct instruction into the often challenging skill of identifying a main idea and the supporting details of a passage. The instruction is then applied to the reading, "Coasting to California," part of the California Treasures reading program.
