Here’s the ideal resource for your under-performing readers! Journey into Reading: Strategies for Comprehension with Vocabulary provides contextual support for vocabulary and word skills, combined with high-interest articles in full-color layouts.
The 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
- Recalling details
- Determining the sequence of events
- Identifying cause-and-effect relationships
- Comparing and contrasting
- Making inferences and drawing conclusions
- Telling fact from opinion
