Mid-Unit Assessment: On-Demand Reading to Determine Main Idea and Supporting Details

This Mid-Unit Assessment: On-Demand Reading to Determine Main Idea and Supporting Details lesson plan also includes:

Children learn about bullying in schools while being tested on their ability to read closely and identify the main idea and supporting details of a text. Following the assessment, young scholars participate in a chalk walk, during which they silently and anonymously address the question "How do you stop a bully from being a bully?" by writing their ideas on pieces of chart paper posted around the room. This activity provides youngsters a safe outlet for sharing their thoughts on bullying, as the class continues creating a list of rules to strengthen the school community.
