© 2008

Provide students explicit instruction in elements common to testing—scores improve...comprehension is strengthened!

Companion Series: Revising and Editing, Responding to Writing Prompts

Even good readers can struggle when faced with paired passages on tests. In the research-based Spotlight Series, they'll encounter passages representing a variety of genres. A similar topic links each pair:

  • nonfiction and nonfiction
  • fiction and fiction
  • nonfiction and fiction

With modeled instruction, guided and independent practice, students learn to:

  • respond to questions relating to the individual passages, then
  • respond to questions relating to the (paired) passages together

They practice with items common to test-taking:

  • multiple-choice
  • short-response/graphic organizer
  • short-response/writing
  • note-taking
  • response to literature, extended writing

Students learn why responses are correct or incorrect.
