Main Idea and Details
The main idea is what a paragraph or passage is mostly about, while details give more information about the main idea. The main idea can be found in either the first or last sentence of a paragraph.
“One thing that we saw on the road frightened me. Chain gangs.”
What are some details that support this main idea?
Writing can be published in a variety of ways:
An autobiography tells the story of the author’s life, while a biography is about someone else’s life.
A dictionary is used to clarify the spelling, pronunciation, usage, and definition of words; it is arranged in alphabetical order; and it has guide words.
Your Student Anthology glossary shares all of these characteristics, although it will only give the meaning and part of speech of a word as it is used in you book’s selections.
A comma is used to set off and separate words and groups of words.
Carrots tomatoes turnips
