Teaching Students to Read Informational Texts - Independently
Model lessons and engaging activities help students apply research-based reading strategies to informational texts so that they can read and comprehend complex texts. Students will learn these key reading strategies:
* finding key details

* locating text evidence to support an answer
* using text features
* understanding text structure
* summarizing text
* asking and answering questions

Armed with these reading skills, students can successfully tackle complex informational texts and really become independent readers. For use with Grades 3-5.
