After teaching and reteaching topic, central idea, and supporting details to my struggling readers, I decided to put together a cheat sheet/poster to prompt them through their guided and independent practice.
This fancy-shmancy and fun graphic breaks down topic, central idea, and supporting details. Students can monitor their learning with the embedded questions at each step.
This is a fun cheat sheet that can remain on desks, in binders, or on the wall as a poster.
