The Materials for Reading 5
Literature gives students an opportunity to consider new perspectives and topics. This student edition provides grade-level appropriate selections representing a variety of genres and authors. Before, during, and after reading sections emphasize comprehension strategies and literary skills. Throughout the program, students are encouraged to approach each selection from a biblical worldview.
This three-part teacher edition provides 180 lessons with guidance for teaching each selection in the student edition. Lesson guides will encourage teachers to use teacher-modeling for activities, including graphic organizers and book reports. Teachers will also have opportunities to develop students’ silent and oral reading skills and assess comprehension through literal and higher-order questions. "Look Again" sections provide opportunities for biblical worldview shaping and collaborative learning. The third volume includes 20 lessons for each of three novels, which are differentiated as low, medium, and high—Misty of Chincoteague, Brady, and The Horse and His Boy.
The activities manual provides extra practice and engaging activities that review the vocabulary and skills covered in the lessons. Composition and informal assessment opportunities are also available in the activities manual.
