The following standards-based lesson plans—from the Beacon Learning Center—provide practical classroom applications of this reading strategy.

  • Diagramming Annabelle Lee
    Using a Story Diagram Chart and a K-W-L Chart, students examine the parts of the Edgar Allan Poe poem, “Annabelle Lee.”

  • What's the Big Idea?
    Students learn to identify the main idea in a reading passage by using a technique to eliminate unnecessary words that are not relevant to the main idea.

  • Human Impact on the Everglades Environment
    Students research changes the Army Corps made in Everglades, focus on the human impact on the environment, design graphic organizers, summary statements, develop a Florida map of the Everglades region and give a presentation about what they learned.
