PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Use this tool to help students determine the "gist," or main idea, of a passage, section of text, or paragraph. The front and back of the GIST Helper can be laminated together and used as a bookmark that students can use to remind them of what "main idea" means, where to look in a text for clues, and then flipped over to write out the main idea with wet erase or dry erase marker. It can also be used to document and assess students' ability to determine main idea. Use this n conjunction with two other digital products of mine (Gina Alfano, formerly Gina Giblin): the Close Reading Steps & Recording Sheet and the Thinking Tracks bookmark, used for annotating text.
