  6. 6. Supporting Details in a Nutshell  Supporting details are the evidence—such as reasons, examples, facts, and steps—that backs up main ideas. These details help you understand main ideas.  There are two levels of supporting details: ◦ Main items of support are called major details. Pay special attention to them. ◦ Major details themselves are sometimes supported with information called minor details.  Words such as several steps or a number of reasons tell you that supporting details may follow.  Words such as first, another, and finally often introduce supporting details.  Outlines and maps (diagrams) can show you a main idea and its supporting details at a glance.
