As you dive into your curriculum, you may notice that your academic goals have been specified, but the means to achieve them aren’t as clear. Developmentally speaking, a clear indication of student understanding lies in the ability to comprehend what they read. To assist in this quest and fill any gap in your core curriculum, we’d like to introduce you to Raz-Plus, a literacy solution that helps students read with purpose and understanding.
Within this comprehensive solution, you will find resources to help students learn to make connections, organize their thinking, cite evidence, discuss text effectively, and interpret visual information. Practice with these various skills leads to a deeper understanding of increasingly complex text, allowing students to truly comprehend what they have learned.
Use the comprehension resources within Raz-Plus to introduce skills to your whole class or for small group work.
