OBJECTIVE: Students will develop a visual study or outline that will support the main idea of a subject with supportive details.
WHAT TO DO: Have students make a collage using the newspaper, stressing the fact that all sections may be used—cartoons, pictures, ads, printed matter. They will concentrate on the subject of air pollution. Examples may be done by the teacher and shared with students to help them get started.
On completion of the work, each student will present his or her project orally specifying the main idea and showing how each part of the collage supports the main idea. The class will be looking for irrelevant details.
