We are adding 900 new non-fiction, fiction and original reporting reading passages to our current library of 1,200 non-fiction passages. Each passage has 10 evidence-based questions that build in complexity, model good questioning, and are ideal for student independent practice. Questions focus on close reading of important information, inference, main idea, text structures (such as cause and effect), vocabulary-in-context, author’s craft, and syntax. The question sets are a combination of multiple-choice and written response.
These new passages are based on essential STEM and social studies topics, along with authentic fiction. In response to your suggestions, we are excited to add passages that are appropriate for 7th and 8th grade. All the passages are lexile-leveled to make it easier for you to differentiate instruction for individual or small group uses.
With a Lexile of 950, Bud, Not Buddy was considered a book for 7th and 8th graders a few years ago, but now it's considered appropriate for 5th and 6th graders. Island of the Blue Dolphins used to be placed in the 8-10 grade band, but now Lexile includes it in grades 7 and 8.
