Designed around Content Knowledge

The Reading Street Common Core, Global Edition 2016 Student Book contains authentic literature, vocabulary, comprehension, research, grammar and writing instruction. It’s also available online via our new learning platform, Realize.  The program provides awarding-winning literature at every grade level, a collection of leveled readers, and a new component, Sleuth magazine. The unique thing about our literature is that students will read widely and deeply among a broad range of increasingly complex texts about a central topic. You will also find content knowledge surrounding Science and Social Studies topics.

Complex Text Accessible to All Students

Reading Street Common Core, Global Edition 2016 makes complex text accessible to all students through scaffolding the instruction and by starting with bite-sized chunks. One of the ways it does this is through the new resource called Sleuth. In magazine format, Sleuth’s purposeful design makes it simpler to teach students the routine to analyze complex text in a shorter passage and then they can transfer that skill to longer text. It’s great for teaching students how to ‘close read’ in bite-size pieces. 


Connect Reading and Writing

Daily and weekly writing tasks prompts students to use text based evidence to support their writing. The writing tasks are scaffolded for students and moves from construction of sentences, to paragraphs to essays that direct students to use text evidence for writing across several texts.

Writing to Sources asks students to dig deeper and write with text based evidence: students will write to a text, compare texts, and write across texts using all three modes of writing.
