Teach the reading and analysis of key text types, using four types of books, plus poetry.
Leveled texts, organized into K-6 topic sets with poetry anthologies, build knowledge and develop literacy skills.

  • Informational, Opinion, and two Narrative books explore one topic in diverse ways.
  • Close Reading instruction is explicitly supported in each book’s Teacher’s Guide.
  • Text-Dependent Comprehension cards provide prompts for evidence-based answers.
  • Cross-Text Analysis cards for each topic set encourage evaluation of content.
