Definition
supporting details are specific statements about the same topic. supporting details describe and support the main idea. supporting details explain/prove the authors point. supporting details are clear, organized details. Supporting Details
A summary is the main idea, plus only one or two details. The summary is the essence or what the whole article is about. Summaries are always brief, short cut versions of the whole article, book, or movie. A summary is not a retelling. Summary definition
The Three Color Strategy to determine Main Idea and Details (Excerpts are taken from Walk Two Moons, Stargirl, and The Underground Railroad.)
Directions for the Three Color Strategy Look for the topic sentence. Underline it in GREEN for start or go. Look for the detail sentences. Underline them in YELLOW for slowing down to give information. Look for the ending sentence. Underline it in RED for stopping the paragraph.

Pronoun Cont. Pronouns must agree with the antecedent in number and gender. Marie and Collin took their chairs with them to the game. There are two antecedents, so the pronoun must be plural Ex: Janessa was wearing her coat at the mall. Janessa is a girl, so the pronoun must be feminine.
