How do you get at the big idea of a whole nonfiction text?


In this lesson you will learn how to get at the big idea of a nonfiction text by stopping at new information and asking “Is this adding to an idea I already have, or is it giving me a new idea?”


Growing Ideas

I’m wondering…

This makes me think…


Some students don’t put the pieces together.


Does this give me a new idea?

Or does it add to an idea I already have?

Life was so hard that some slaves ran away even if they didn’t know what would happen next.


Does this give me a new idea?

Or does it add to an idea I already have?

Life was just as hard after running away as it was on a plantation.


1

  • Stop at new information.

2

  • Ask, “Is this adding to an idea I already have or giving me a new idea?”


In this lesson you have learned how to get at the big idea of a nonfiction text by stopping at new information and asking “Is this adding to an idea I already have, or is it giving me a new idea?”


Slave children were often taken from their mothers at 12 months of age. By age, four they might be babysitting younger children. By age seven, they might work in the fields.

Read this new information. Does this add to an idea you already had or give you a new idea?


  • Read two texts related to the same topic.

  • As you read both texts, work to grow ideas that use information from both texts.


How can you grow ideas as you encounter new information?
