How I Use It
I used the reading passages for the purpose of introducing my students to close reading strategies. The various lexile levels, skills, and strategies are helpful in meeting the needs of my particular students.
My Take
I think it's a useful teaching tool for close reading, comprehension, and fluency practice. My students were highly interested in the topics of most of the passages. I would like to see more passages available per grade level.
