Get Set for Reading New York provides comprehension practice for the informational and literary text types identified by the Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS) as it familiarizes students with the challenging item types they’ll face on test day. It’s a great complement to any core basal program and is an ideal way to engage students in close reading.
A focus on text types Each book is centered on the informational and literary text types identified by the CCLS at each grade level. Focus lessons in the front of each book show students how to work through reading specific types of texts and answering questions in the theme-based units and lessons.
Practice for the assessment Items throughout the lessons, with an emphasis on the Independent Practice section, require students to apply close reading strategies to answer text-dependent questions and make text-to-text connections across multiple passages..
Critical thinking practice Open-ended questions in the guided practice require students to use higher-order thinking to form their answers. Explanations guide students in fully answering each question.
Colorful lessons Full-color pages engage students for successful learning.
Teacher support Annotated teacher’s editions include activities to reinforce the speaking, listening, and writing standards, NY Common Core Learning Standards correlations, suggestions for use/teaching strategies, answer key with annotated student pages, ELL extension activities, graphic organizers, and Tier 2 and Tier 3 vocabulary support.
