My students loved this reading selection.

After spending much of my day today (Saturday:) searching through "research-based" reading programs preparing for next week's plans, this tops them all. The depth of higher order thinking questions aligned with each passage appears impressive. Looking forward to sharing real data of improved comprehension as I join other teachers in our disctrict who already see reading success for Putnam Co. Schools in TN!
