Reading is about understanding what is being read . This form has assisted many students in writing the Main Idea, Details and being able to draw a colored picture to assist in visualize and therefore understand what is being read. The brain remembers color and and when you add a colored picture to your writing everything is stored and filed in the brain. When the student revisits the form with the colored picture and he/she must do is look at the picture and the student will be able to remember the main idea, and the details on that sheet.
I have used this with note taking for Science chapters, novels and so much more.
