Getting the Main Idea…

Good day, students! We will be moving into the Main Idea portion of our FCAT preparation. Here is the Common Core Benchmark:

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.8.2 Determine a central idea of a text and analyze its development over the course of the text, including its relationship to supporting ideas; provide an objective summary of the text.

We will be using our workbooks to go over Main Idea, as well as the FCAT Focus program.

  • Complete the self-survey on pg. 111 about your interests
  • Read about the Main Idea skill
  • Read “Owning Your Future: Turning Dreams into Reality” pg. 112
  • Follow along in your group and complete margin questions
