Keywords: A Memorization Strategy

Here is a fabulous, five-page lesson plan on how keywords can help a reader with his/her reading comprehension. After a teacher-led discussion, pupils pair off with each other and work together to identify the main idea in a passage of reading. They write a sentence that sums up the idea, and come up with a few keywords of their own. I like the design of the lesson, and the activities that are described. Very good!

Lesson Planet has helped me give some great extending activities that I hadn't thought of before. It has also helped me be able to deliver a quality lesson when life gets busy, when I'm forced to be on the fly and not as prepared as I'd like to be.
