Help ensure reading comprehension success with lessons that teach students to set a purpose for reading, identify various text types and structures, and preview test questions to more efficiently read and respond to text.
Why Use Preview Lessons
Using a preview strategy helps make reading more efficient and effective when students are reading for a purpose, such as answering test questions on high-stakes tests that often have time constraints.
Explicit instruction means that students learn to appropriately apply text-previewing strategies across a range of texts and are better able to access and understand the content they are reading in order to answer questions.
How To Use Preview Lessons
Each preview lesson focuses on a discrete skill, such as identifying text features or text structure, and follows a similar instructional approach of model, practice, and assess. Step-by-step instructions and a sample dialog section called I Do, We Do, You Do helps teachers ease students into taking more responsibility for their own learning.
Grade-range appropriate student resources in printable and projectable formats for each lesson provide the tools necessary for whole-class, small-group, or independent practice of each skill.
