My students struggle with finding the main idea and supporting details in non-fiction passages. I developed this organizer to help them not only to identify the main idea and supporting details, but to give them practice summarizing.
This packet contains the graphic organizer shown in the preview. In my classroom, it is used in small group instruction. By the end of the year, I want my students to be able to use it on their own as a guide for taking notes and writing summaries for any grade level non-fiction reading assignment.
