Friends, this is a great resource to keep your students engaged and involved during guided reading. Students will use these THINKING ENHANCED ITEMS to show their teacher what they know. Teachers can use these passages and activities to provide immediate feedback, guide their students' understanding, use data for progress monitor, and re-evaluate their instruction. More importantly, to increase rigor, we included multiple response answer choices. Students will build their academic language skills as they understand the rigor in the vocabulary graphic model. These passages were pulled from Harcourt Journeys series, but we created these questions and TEI because of the demand for high-quality Tier 1 instruction.
