Marking a Text
Marking a Text is an analytical reading strategy that helps students identify and isolate essential information in a text like key terms and claims. Marking a Text requires students to read carefully as they evaluate the importance of ideas in a text. When students read with purpose, their comprehension and retention of essential ideas increases.

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.
