Give students direct and explicit instruction on key comprehension skills with the Comprehension
Skill Packs. Each lesson plan follows the teach, practice, and apply instructional approach to
support students as they build meaning from texts.
Students need direct and explicit instruction to know when and how comprehension
skills and strategies should be used. The Comprehension Skill Packs deliver various
opportunities for repeated practice until these skills become automatic,
enabling strategic, adaptable readers who can build meaning from text.
Every grade level includes a variety of packs, each of which contains
a lesson plan and fiction or nonfiction grade-level passages in
printable and projectable formats.
Introduce the pack's target comprehension skill before modeling it
for students, who can then practice the skill themselves. Students can
then move on to various extension activities, such as an assortment of
Leveled Books and Graphic Organizers that focus on the
same comprehension skills.
