Students will learn to:
- Use comprehension strategies for before, during, and after reading.
- Take ownership of new vocabulary by applying strategies that unlock new word meanings
- Develop fluency and expression through oral reading practice of a variety of texts.
- Gain independence in accessing information from nonfiction texts through a scaffolded instructional plan.

This grade 8 text includes 6 units, each with three non-fiction texts centered on the unit theme: Unsolved Mysteries in Medicine, The Olympics Then & Now, Rediscovering People in America's Past, Endangered or Extinct, They Came Across the Water, and the Future.

Throughout, they'll learn to organize information, write for comprehension, and work on vocabulary and fluency. "Reading the Real World" sections provide students with examples of reading they might encounter in real life, and are followed by discussion questions.
