This activity has been designed to enhance student understanding for main idea and supporting details as per the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Similarly, it has been adapted to correlate with the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) Journeys and Treasures reading series. It can be used as both a direct instruction activity or as skill practice at a literacy station or reading center. The product contains two (2) different graphic organizers which I have used when differentiating for my students.
I have found this to be successful when used in a variety of scenarios, such as independent student work, cooperatively both with partners or multiple peer groups, and as follow-up at some type of literacy center, such as a listening or response station.
