Description

This lesson from ReadWriteThink provides a model, practice, and assessment in the sorting and categorizing of main concepts through the awareness and understanding of section headings. The lesson requires students to work together to explore their understanding of section headings and solve problems presented to them. For extension activities, students can write their own expository text using three to five section headings and apply the strategy to the outline format.
