These books are designed to prepare your students for the Reading portion of the State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR). Many states measure achievement in reading by assessing student progress on benchmark objectives identified in their state standards. The state of Texas is one of those states. This book provides teachers with a variety of reading passages and questions that help assess student knowledge of reading standards tested on the STAAR.
This practice book provides reading passages that consist of narrative text, expository text, and mixed passages. Expository passages include informative, biographical, autobiographical, and how-to selections. Mixed passages put two different kinds of writing together in one selection.
Questions follow each passage. Each question is designed to assess a specific STAAR standard.
Teacher Editions contain an answer key which tells you the type of passage, higher level vocabulary found in each passage, each standard tested along with its correct answer, and a list of possible extension activities.
Teacher Editions also include a bibliography and a reading benchmark standards matrix showing which passage assesses which standards.
Each of these workbooks provides hours of on-grade-level reading comprehension practice. Passages range in readability to allow for differentiated instruction. The grades 3-8 Reading Comprehension titles are great test preparation tools.
These books are also great for home schooling!
