The 20 cloze reading passages in this unit are a great springboard for comprehension. When students complete a cloze passage and have the opportunity to discuss their responses, more significant growth in the comprehension takes place. The students not only gain a greater understanding of concepts, but they
expand their vocabulary, as well.
Each story is followed by comprehension questions for discussion. This added feature insures that students have a broad understanding of the story by incorporating thinking skills as well as recall activities. The questions involve inference, prediction, and relationship.
The words in this passage have not been deleted at random. Care was taken to include all of the parts of speech and an effort was made to avoid deletions that would confuse the student.
The stories featured in this unit have unusual content, which should make them highly interesting to students. The selections are presented in gradually increasing length and difficulty. When students are gradually exposed to more challenging material, their reading skills generally grow.
