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!
