It's my newly updated, highly downloaded Nonfiction Reading Strategies/Student worksheets. It includes a few new graphic organizers, and best of all, it's free from now through Sunday! Here's one of the newest graphics I created and included last week.
Students use the "Big Idea House" by recording the big idea then pulling out the important details (foundation/support) for that big idea. I also turned the "Big Idea House" upside down so that it looks more like an arrow to show that students can think of the big idea in the other direction as well--details, then big idea. I taught that we could think about the big idea in both directions this year...it turns out that in some nonfiction, the big idea is easy to come up with, so students can prove their big idea with supporting details; other times, the big idea is hard to spot right off, so it helps to break down the supporting details (or sections) to see how everything is connected.
