Goal: I can identify important facts and details in an information text


Write the main idea of a television program you watched in the past few days.

Write 3 important things that happened in  the TV show.


  • You can find the facts and details in a reading passage by thinking about the main idea.
  • You may be able to find the main idea in the title, the first line, the last line, or by drawing together what you know about the whole text
  • Once you know the main idea, you can find the details that tell more about the main idea.
  • Look for sentences that provide information about the main idea and tell the who, what, when, where, why and how..about the main idea
  • The main idea is BROAD, while the details are SPECIFIC
