This reading comprehension program provides teaching strategies and practice activities that help teachers make the most of their students' reading instruction. Each unit has teaching instruction pages with directions for introducing and applying each skill. Numerous follow-up activity sheets provide students with multiple opportunities for practicing critical reading comprehension skills. The activities are appropriate for individual, small-group, and whole-class instruction. Activities progress in difficulty while maintaining a low reading level, remaining short in length, and continuing to use simple vocabulary. Both fiction and nonfiction passages feature high-interest, "real-world" topics and visual aids, such as charts and time lines, that captivate students' interest.
