The STAX Independent Reading Program allows your gifted and advanced readers to create tasks and respond to meaningful critical thinking challenges to any novel. The STAX program invites both creative and thoughtful responses and guides your readers at their own pace. Teachers simply check in and monitor progress and reserve a bit of class time for STAX readers to present projects to the entire class.
The STAX Independent Reading Program comes with full instructions as well as a complete starter STAX for "Afternoon of the Elves." It also contains Common Core State Standards for all types of tasks in the STAX program as well as teacher and students checklists to monitor progress in the program.
