- For example, topic of the passage is Jane Goodall. Main idea of the passage is Jane Goodall did many great things throughout her life. Main idea of paragraph two is Jane Goodall grew up and went to school in England.
- This week we will be reviewing quotation marks.
- There are three rules. See if your student can tell you all three rules:
