In this age of “txt-speak,” sound bites, and YouTube videos, 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 Critical 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+. 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.
