Lesson 25: Reading fluently and comparing main ideas across texts

In this lesson, students practice reading fluently by rereading “New Theory: Galileo Discovered Neptune,” with a focus on using punctuation to guide phrasing.  They also explain the relationship between a main idea in “New Theory: Galileo Discovered Neptune” and a main idea from “The Making of a Scientist” by collecting specific information from both texts to supports that idea.
