Product Description

Reading Comprehension in Varied Subject Matter features nonfiction reading passages covering social studies, science, literature, mathematics, philosophy, logic, language, the arts, and combined subjects. These passages are followed by comprehension questions including story recall, inferential questions, and writing prompts. Books are arranged thematically, with selections related to one another, to show different aspects of a topic and give students a broader knowledge of a subject. Topics and questions prepare students for standardized tests and provide valuable practice in nonfiction reading comprehension.

The consistent format allows students in the same class to use different levels in the series - it's helpful for classrooms or homeschools with children of varying reading abilities. Students gain confidence and increase their reading, language, and comprehension skills as they progress through the series.

The full series is comprised of 14 student books and spans grades 2-11. The Early Reading Comprehension workbooks (Books A-D) are for young readers, specifically grades 2-4. Reading Comprehension (Books 1-6) targets grades 3-8, and MORE Reading Comprehension (Levels 1-4) is designed for junior high and older students.

In each lesson, the presentation of the passage consistently follows the same 7-step format:

  • About the Passage - introduces the selection to the reader and activates prior knowledge

  • Reason for Reading - explains the reading skill emphasized
  • The Selection - thematically organized selections across subject matter.
  • Thinking it Over - lists two to three broad questions to be answered in writing
  • Studying the Passage - asks questions about the main idea, facts, and sequence, and asks students to draw conclusions, make assumptions, and interpret.
  • Using the Words - encourages students to use new vocabulary words in a paragraph
  • Writing about It - has students answer questions about the contents of the selection and offer their interpretation or opinion

Reading Comprehension Book 6 includes 31 selections in the following 7 subject areas. A sample passage title is given for each subject area:

  • Social Studies - Our Basic American Right

  • Science - The Biggest River
  • Philosophy, Logic, and Language - The Power of Words
  • Combined Subjects - Communication Through the Arts
  • Math - Mathematics in Art
  • Literature - Desert Treasure
  • The Arts - The Art of Ancient Egypt
