We were learning about landforms in the science text, so I used this content to teach the skill. I displayed the main idea and supporting details graphic organizer on the document camera. I told students we were going to use it to help us find what the text is mostly about and the details that explain it.

By far, one of the hardest skills to teach is determining the main idea of a nonfiction text. Not only is determining main idea pretty difficult for some or most depending on your class that year students, it is also so critical for understanding nonfiction text. To make matters more complicated, so many other nonfiction skills are also dependent on understanding that main idea. Keeping this in mind, I choose to teach main idea three different ways in an attempt to help all of my students master this tricky skill. Keep reading to read the three approaches to teaching main idea and hopefully get some new ideas when you teach it.
