One of the things I struggle with the most is preparing my students for all kinds of exams that they will encounter. With this EASY-TO-TEACH reading comprehension packet, you can practice with your students, so they will feel more confident analyzing texts for theme/central idea, words/phrases, citing evidence, structure, author's claims, and author's purpose. They are great for pull-outs, push-ins, whole groups, small groups, or sub plans. Give yourself a breath of fresh air with this NO PREP curriculum that integrates test prep within the teaching of literature.
