Description

 

In this age of “txt-speak,” sound bites, and MP3s, your child’s reading comprehension can suffer. Students need critical thinking skills to understand the information that bombards them every day!

Reading Detective Rx from The Criticial Thinking Company uses higher-order thinking to improve reading comprehension for remedial students.

The standards-based critical thinking activities of Reading Detective® develop the analysis, synthesis, and vocabulary skills students need for exceptional reading comprehension.

The activities help students understand challenging reading concepts, such as:

  • Drawing inferences
  • Making conclusions
  • Determining cause-and-effect
  • Using context clues to define vocabulary


Students read and analyze short literature passages and stories that include fiction and nonfiction genres. Then they answer multiple-choice and short-response questions, citing sentence evidence to support their answers.

 
Reading Detective Rx activities are “prescriptive” to help under-performing students in Grades 6–12+ improve their comprehension skills. Reading level is Grades 4–6; story content is Grades 6+.

The Reading Detective Rx Grades 6–12+ remedial level is organized into single-skill units with a concluding mixed-skills unit and provides an introductory lesson for each skill.

Teaching Support includes pretests, post-tests, lesson guidelines, and answers with detailed evidence.

Teach your child how to read and think as God would have him or her with Reading Detective Rx from The Criticial Thinking Company! Order today from Curriculum Express!
