This resource is a very valuable tool for teachers and other stakeholders to use when trying to teach ABE students, or even third and fourth grade students, about identifying the main idea and details of an informational text. It provides clear learning objectives and easy-to-follow instructional strategies. It also provides follow-up activities and suggestions for assessing the skills.
