This EDITABLE PowerPoint reviews comparing and contrasting, author's purpose, inferring with supporting evidence, main idea and supporting details, summarizing, question-answer relationship, cause and effect, and briefly touched on sequencing. I used this as a quick review over two days (about 15 minutes each day) during our literacy time to review for the CRCT for fifth graders, but would probably work for grades 3-6.
The last few slides go along with a short article I found on readworks.com about the Cuban Missile Crisis. It fit into our Social Studies curriculum, but could easily be edited to use with any text. I had students read the article with a partner and highlight the causes and effects in two colors. We then reconvened and shared our findings. http://www.readworks.org/passages/north-america-cuba-cold-war-and-crisis-century
