Overview of the strategy
The About/Point strategy, developed by Morgan, Meeks, Schollaert, and Paul, is a versatile strategy for informational, persuasive, and expository text. With it, readers need to find the subject of the text and state it succinctly; they must enumerate the points made, as well. With such a chart, students can find and record the main idea as well as the supporting details. They can also recognize the author’s viewpoint or bias. Teacher modeling is essential.

Strategy procedure
1.  Choose and distribute a short expository or persuasive text on the instructional reading level of students. Read
the text to the students, or assign them to read it with partners.
2.  Distribute and display the About/Point Chart (shown below), and model its use. Demonstrate, using Think-Aloud, how to find and record the main idea in as few words as possible in the space next to ABOUT. Demonstrate, using Think-Aloud, how to find and record the supporting details in the bulleted space next to POINT. In this space, the author’s viewpoint can be highlighted as well.
3.  Choose and distribute another short text on the independent reading level of students. Assign the students to read the text, individually or with partners.
4.  Instruct the students to complete an About/Point Chart for this text. Discuss the student answers with the class, listing all the points made on a group About/Point Chart. There should be a fair amount of agreement about the main idea and a fair amount of variation in the points list.
5.  Repeat often with increasingly complex texts.
