Teach Reading

Most students have trouble understanding main ideas and claims in a text regardless of the subject. We believe students must learn how to read a text closely, identify the main ideas, cite evidence and explain it in their own words. The ability to read well is vital for success in high school, college and the workplace. Our FREE toolkit helps teachers teach reading skills in any classroom.
