Product Description
Many terms arise in the language arts classroom to define the BIG PICTURE or what the story is about. Central idea and main idea as well as supportive details are best defined with the analogy of a target. The central idea is the bulls-eye of the target; whereas, there can be more than one main idea which are like circles surrounding the target. The supportive details are like a bow and arrow which help guide one's eye to hit the target. This PowerPoint provides definitions and metaphors for these terms as well as several text examples. Note: Some may argue that another term for central idea is theme.
