This grade 5, 6, and 7 ELA unit teaches how to identify the Central Idea, Main Idea, Locating Key Details, and Summarizing Text.
This is a unit that focuses solely on helping teach students identify and explain the central/main idea of a paragraph, excerpt, or text, explaining this idea with key details from the text, and summarizing what we read. This unit consists of both a pre and post test for data tracking and growth management (ANSWER KEYS INCLUDED). There are multiple activities to teach and help students how to identify the central/main idea of texts and charts/graphs. There are also activities to teach and help students strategize to write summaries of texts. This is a very focused and fun unit that is solely centered around the RI5.2, 6.2, and 7.2 standards.
This unit is wonderful for an additional way to track data on the mastery of a specific standard. The unit, questions, I CAN statements, and activities are based off of research based practices and have been developed by an experienced and practicing ELA teacher who understands what you need. Lessons are intended to reach a wide variety of learners.
This unit could be used to teach an entire class, for Morning Work, intervention purposes, etc. It is very flexible and should fit the needs of your class no matter how you decide to implement the unit. lessons, and resources.
