-Short informational text about a McDonald's ad with built-in graphic organizer for copying down central ideas and supporting details.
-Collaboration prompts for group work
Here's what I did in my class:
-Read the article as a class
-Break students into small groups and have them write in the central ideas and supporting details for each paragraph of the essay in the boxes below each paragraph.
-Have each group write a summary of the article
-Have each group present their summary to class. Give feedback and ask students to give feedback.
-Ask students to edit their group's summary individually using the feedback given to them.
