Clear Selections

Read Reason Write: New York is designed to improve student performance in a number of key reading skills. Each book contains high-interest reading selections related to a given theme. These selections form the base for a range of reading comprehension and writing activities, including graphic organizers to help students sort out their thoughts.

Student Books

  • Ascending readability levels are found throughout each book, starting slightly below and building to a high on-grade level. This approach reflects the Common Core’s emphasis on more rigorous text to “stretch” students’ reading comprehension.
  • Multiple themed books per grade level with fiction and nonfiction passages serve to motivate readers.
  • Each book contains two review lessons that require students to think about several selections at one time—synthesize, generalize, and conceptualize. Application of this type of higher-level thinking skill is a fundamental part of the Common Core.

Teacher’s Guides
Comprehensive teacher’s guides include additional information about the theme and topics covered, call out words that are essential for students’ understanding of the selection, concrete suggestions for using the materials, skill instruction to aid in writing, and a complete answer key with correlations to the Performance Indicators and Literacy Competencies of the NYS English Language Arts Core Curriculum. Lessons are also correlated to the Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS).

Suggested activities, discussions, and/or projects follow each lesson to promote the development of critical thinking skills and concept development. Students are often required to use a variety of resources to complete the tasks, including print and online tools.
