Lesson 3: Finding a main idea of a section of a text

Lesson 3: Finding a main idea of a section of a text

Students read “Making of a Scientist” for the first time. In this lesson, they determine a main idea of paragraphs 1-3. In the next lesson, they reread the rest of the text, gather evidence, and revise the main idea to be for the whole text. They use context clues to determine the meaning of unknown and multiple-meaning words.
