Glitter and Glue - Set 13 - Main Idea and Evidence

Glitter and Glue - Set 13 - Main Idea and Evidence


Focus for this set:

  • Finding the key ideas (walk-fit) and the evidence the illustrates it (yoga-fit), then explaining how the evidence illustrates that main idea (cross-fit)
  • Ways to discuss how the author manipulates the readers (eg The author reinforces this idea by...)
  • Thinking critically about purpose (included in the extra activity referred to in number 2 below)

This set is designed to be used for Years 11-13.


This set has extra material that previous sets don't.  As a result, it is $8 instead of the $5 I usually charge for Glitter and Glue sets.  Also, each day's activities require a longer amount of time, so be prepared for that. 

This resource contains Microsoft PowerPoint slides that include:

1. The complete set - activities, answers and glitter - to work through via your big screen as a class.  There are extra HANDOUTS to go with this.

2.  Extra activities that can be printed or sent to students digitally to 'consolidate' their writing about Unfamiliar Texts.  These activities provide students with the marking guides for each text, then asking them to process that information into long answer formats. It's a brilliant way of scaffolding the discussion of texts.

3. The activities and glue only (send to students digitally as homework, classwork or whatever)

4. The answers only (send to students digitally after they've complete number 2 above)

5. Tasks cards you can print and laminate (leave in your room for earlier finishers for example)
