Here is a great strategy for assisting students in getting the main idea of a paragraph or sentence.
W I N = W- who or what is most important in the paragraph
I - important information about the who or what
N - write a one sentence summary in 10 words or more of the information.
Use this strategy with underlining or highlighting.
