  • Preview

Look for meaning clues in introductions, titles, chapter headings, subheadings, bold words, boxed information, pictures, charts, and graphs.

  • Read

Read the entire text, looking for the general idea or ideas being presented. Re-read to find and highlight key words and concepts.

  • Focus

Focus on individual paragraphs within the text, starting at the beginning. Generally, each paragraph in a piece of writing about a topic is a group of sentences dealing with one idea related to that topic.

  • Look for transition words

Words and phrases such as "thus," "first," "next," "however," and "in addition," often indicate shifts in thought and signal the presence of examples and supporting details.

  • Identify the most general statement

Sometimes the main idea of a paragraph is directly stated in a sentence, called the topic sentence of the paragraph.

  • Look for supporting evidence and discussion

Sometimes the main idea is not directly stated in one sentence but is implied or suggested by all of the sentences in the paragraph.
