Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Blended Learning Main Idea and Supporting Details Unit


The following unit was created for a tier 3 reading intervention class that typically is 3 or more years below reading level in grades 6-8. This unit is approximately 2 weeks long, although I would revisit main idea throughout the semester since it can be weaved into any topic. This particular unit uses appropriate leveled non-fiction text, small group work, class collaboration, and online assignments and activities done individually. There are a couple assessments as well, both formal and informal.

Learning Targets: 
The students will be able to determine the main idea of a piece of writing.
The students will be able to identify details that support a main idea.
