Main Ideas and supporting details is a reading skill that many students struggle with. This short video course - aimed directly at students - models EXACTLY how students can find the main idea, supporting ideas, and central ideas of nonfiction text using engaging, leverageable, and powerful strategies.
Use the video as a teaching aid - or simply show the video DIRECTLY to your students, pausing at certain times while your students follow on with the steps given.
The approach in the video is the:'I do - We do - You do' - Show the stages of a typical lesson.
ALL SLIDES shown in the video are offered as supplementary material FREE with this video AND links to the HIGHLY ENGAGING topic ' Should students listen to music while studying' is also provided.
In addition - a follow-up, small group activity is also given for students to have additional practice at this important skill.
This video is the first of four in my powerful short NF reading strategies course on informational text. (Find these in my store -NF Craft and Structure Moves and NF Text Meaning)
Simply sit back and let this video do your teaching. I will be adding dozens of teaching videos similar to this one that uses this same approach to lesson delivery. 'I do - We do - You do'
