Understanding the BIG IDEA of a text is an important part of being a critically literate reader (Walmsley, The Reading Teacher, Nov. 2006). This graphic organizer will help you assess whether or not your students comprehend the big idea (not the main idea) of an entire text. Further, using this sheet can help you assess students before a conference or after a whole-class read aloud discussion.
