Hello! This main idea graphic organizer is GREAT if you have texts that have more than 1 main idea. Often times there are only graphic organizers that have one main idea; however, in upper grade, there is usually more than 1 main idea in a text. Students will get practice with determining the main idea and finding 3 key details that support each main idea. If you use Step-Up to Writing, this would be great for students to show Stars for the main ideas and underline the text in red for evidence.
I have also attached a Rubric that allows for student accountability when they are writing about the main idea and key details of a text. This is a great tool for students to use with their partners to do peer evaluations. It's a great way for students to take accountability for their learning, as well as, for teachers to work with students to assess the skill.
I hope you enjoy this product. Please let me know if you have any questions. :)
