Product Description

Created for grades 4–8, the Toolkit of Reading features quick, clear lessons on all the critical skills students need to understand complex texts, including new skills emphasized in the Common Core State Standards. These engaging resources, available as downloadable PDFs, define key terms, describe how and why the skills are important to readers, and provide a series of activities to encourage mastery.
