This activity/graphic organizer aligns to the common core standards RL.2 "Determine central ideas or themes of a text and analyze their development."
How to use this item:
1. Complete this as a class as a minilesson
2.After reading a text, give students a few minutes to complete the web. Students can do this independently or in groups. Then have students share their observations and fill out a web for the class.
Either the same day or a different day complete the second page. I have had the best results when having students work with a partner or small group.
