Comprehension Strategies: Identifying Main Idea and Supporting Details

Need a quick reading comprehension lesson plan on how to determine the main idea of a passage? This resource details a short lecture and a guided practice exercise that shows readers how to identify the main idea and supporting ideas in a nonfiction selection. The first model focuses on the Carnegie Hero Fund. Consider extending the lesson plan by having your learners craft their own passage about someone they consider a hero.
