Spotlight on Reading & Listening Comprehension Level 2: 6-Book Set on CD
Students become purposeful, active readers as they develop six research-based reading comprehension skills. The content is designed to appeal to older students reading below grade level.
Each book has 11 reading lessons with three levels of controlled readability: 4.0-4.9, 5.0-5.9, and 6.0-6.9. Each lesson consists of a one-page, illustrated reading passage and two pages of reading comprehension questions for learning the targeted skill area, detecting the main idea, identifying details, and thinking about the vocabulary and semantics in the passage.
The reading comprehension questions are similar to those found on classroom and national reading comprehension tests. Questions challenge students to think about the reading passage and use reasoning skills. Most of the questions are multiple-choice with some true/false and oral response questions and a writing activity.
Each book targets a specific reading comprehension skill. The books may be purchased individually or as part of the 6-book Spotlight on Reading & Listening Comprehension Level 2 set. The 6-book set consists of:
Fact & Opinion - Students analyze what they read and determine important information and differentiate fact from personal opinion.
Figurative Language - Context clues and well-framed questions help students understand figurative language.
Making Inferences & Drawing Conclusions - Students learn to read between the lines and make logical inferences and conclusions about what they read.
Paraphrasing & Summarizing - Students choose correct summary statements and rephrase statements from reading passages.
Problem Solving - Use higher-order thinking skills to problem solve situations in stories. Questions require students to reason, predict, infer, and think flexibly.
Understanding Everyday Information - Read and comprehend everyday written text such as detailed weather reports, informational brochures, written rules, correspondence, and more.
