Why Lesson Planet?
Quite often, learners confuse the main idea in a selection of reading with the supporting details. In this lesson, pupils practice the skill of finding the main idea and the supporting details in pieces of writing. Newspaper articles from the local paper are used to provide this practice. Classified ads are also good sources to quickly find the main idea, and the supporting details of what's being advertised.
