Targeted instruction and multiple reads of complex text lead to multiple levels of understanding.
All applicable Reading Comprehension, and Language standards are fully covered, and critical Speaking and Listening standards are included too. Paired readings are grouped by genre, with a choice of two “capstone” reading projects in every unit. Instruction is organized around multiple reads of a single text, with lots of text support preceding independent reading, which is also well-scaffolded. Primary Sources related to US history and reading historical documents are covered throughout.
Common Core Coach, American Literature, Level II, contains higher readability passages and instruction that is more sophisticated than in our Level I text. Reading passages include works by Isaac Asimov, O. Henry, James Madison, Henry David Thoreau, and more.
