This is a "Note Catcher" that goes along with the Social Studies series created by Houghton Mifflin. This note catcher goes with Chapter 5, Lesson 3. I have created a note catcher that will give students a guide line to use as they are reading the text. This is a great opportunity to teach note taking skills. Once students have become adept at using the note catcher they can begin to use it independently. What a great way to develop expository text reading skills which are assessed by the new common core standards!
My students use these in Science & Social Studies each day. I have been amazed at how easily they have become skilled at picking out the important information in a piece of expository text. The note catcher is also an excellent tool for students to put in their interactive Social Studies notebooks or learning logs.
