Both a reading and speaking activity, Investigative Reading provides opportunities for students to practice questioning, evaluating, summarizing, and clarifying information while modeling for others how to think in these ways.

Literacy Standards In Action

We've mapped our literacy lessons and reading, speaking, and writing skills to state standards, Common Core, and NGSS. The standards are "the what" to teach. Our lessons are "the how" to meet the expectations defined by the standards. Click on the links below to view our quick reference table that maps standards to literacy lessons.
