Main Idea and Details- The main idea is what the paragraph is about.  Often, but not always, a writer provides a clear topic sentence that states the main idea of the paragraph.  This sentence usually appears at the beginning or the end of a paragraph.  Supporting sentences provide details that tell more about the main idea.
