Answer Key

?_Geography  5 Ws and How

The "5 Ws and How" chart requires students to select main ideas and omit less important details. When evaluating the charts, look for evidence that a student is having difficulty omitting less important information, or has trouble identifying the main ideas. To provide support for these students, you may wish to work with them in a small group and cooperatively repeat the charting activity using another article from the site.

Use or adapt the following criteria to evaluate the students' oral summaries:

•  the content of the oral summary shows that the

   student is able to discriminate more important

   information from less important information

•  the student has organized the information in a logical

   manner

•  the student speaks clearly and with confidence
