Description

Determining main idea and key details of an expository text is the first big step in true reading comprehension of an informational text - so it’s a pretty crucial skill! These Main Idea and Supporting Details Reading Comprehension Passages were created for students to practice identifying the main idea and its key details over and over again to build their confidence and proficiency with this skill. Not only will students gain experience identifying a single main idea, but they will be exposed to passages with multiple main ideas as they work their way through this resource. With 3 differentiated levels for each of the 10 passages, differentiation is a breeze! Every passage was designed specifically to help students identify the main idea and supporting details. Your students will be pros at identifying and analyzing the hierarchy of information in nonfiction texts in no time!
