Here's the ideal resource for those under-performing readers in grades 3-8! Journey into Reading: New York provides contextual support for vocabulary and word skills, combined with high-interest articles in full-color layouts.
Teacher's guides include comprehension skills and strategies, an implementation guide, and an answer key with correlations to the NYS Performance Indicators and Literacy Competencies.
Student books feature a three stage approach to developing vocabulary: preteaching vocabulary for each reading selection, highlighting more vocabulary words within each selection, and providing word-study activities after each selection.
Each lesson emphasizes a specific comprehension skill:
Recognizing the main idea
Determining the sequence of events
Identifying cause-and-effect relationships
Comparing and contrasting
Making inferences and drawing conclusions
Telling fact from opinion
Teacher resource kits are an excellent support tool for the series! Components include a New York teacher's guide and blackline masters for graphic organizers, vocabulary tests, skill-specific practice, and a posttest.
