Teach the reading and analysis of key text types, using four types of books, plus poetry.
Leveled texts, organized into K-6 topic sets with poetry anthologies, build knowledge and develop literacy skills.
- Informational, Opinion, and two Narrative books explore one topic in diverse ways.
- Close Reading instruction is explicitly supported in each book’s Teacher’s Guide.
- Text-Dependent Comprehension cards provide prompts for evidence-based answers.
- Cross-Text Analysis cards for each topic set encourage evaluation of content.
