This product includes a list of main ideas or impacts that are most common when considering multiple perspectives or when evaluating pros and cons.
Even as adults, as we weigh pros and cons about a decision we need to make, there are common main ideas we often think about(i.e. How will this impact me financially?). These same main ideas can be used as students read and form opinions about a variety of topics.
This list is perfect to have made into a poster for your classroom or copies made for your students' reading notebooks.
This list helps students to find and develop main ideas when forming opinions, writing essays, planning for debates and identifying main ideas. It can be hard for students to find the right words to describe the main ideas as they read, write, and organize their thinking,
but this list helps students put their thinking into a shared language.
This resource is one of the most used in my classroom!
