Identifying ‘the main idea’ and ‘supporting details’ in writing.
Students’ age range: 10-12
Main subject: Language arts and literature
Topic: Comprehension
Description: Students will view a video presentation entitled ‘Batman versus Superman’ and the teacher will ask several questions such as “What is video about?”, “State two things that recall from the video” and ‘Which part of the video did you enjoy the most?” to generate discussion. Answers will be conferred and students asked if they could guess what will be discussed today. The teacher will introduce the lesson.
Learning Activities/Experiences:
The students will be asked to recall meanings of the terms, ‘main idea’ and ‘supporting details’ in their own words. Students will understand the concept of finding the main idea and supporting details.
The teacher will organize students in groups and engage them in “Two-Minute Talks”, an activating strategy. Students will listen attentively and follow the instructions of the teacher. They will be asked to read a short information passage on elephants.

Students will work in pairs and share by brainstorming everything they know about elephants. Students will retell a portion of their findings in their “two-minute talks” or the fishbowl technique to share ideas and evaluate written information and the information presented by their peers.
The teacher will do a close reading of a comprehension passage about elephants questioning students before, during and after the reading. Then, students will re-read passage and complete their assessment.

They will then share them with the class; the teacher will instruct the students to use their dictionaries to confirm the definitions they have given.
Step 3:
The students will be asked to why they think that cooperation is important. A small discussion will ensue. The students will then be asked to identify the group from the introductory activity co-operated better and why. They will then be led to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of co-operation.
The students will be given a different set of groups (eg. Teacher-student, parents, and teachers, managers and workers and countries) they will be instructed to list some examples of co-operation and non-co-operation between the group that they had handpicked. The students will share their list with the class.
The students will then brainstorm for reasons why cooperation among countries is important. The student’s responses will be recorded on a concept map.
