Thanks for your support and valuable help. I am from Chile and these materials are awesome for my students

I like it. This is a great lesson for science.

Great materials!!!

This is great

I appreciate the work that the people of this site have done. It is an excellent compilation of reading comprehension passages that I can use for High School Special Education students to differentiate reading instruction.

The range of articles helps me to differentiate instruction for my lower readers and still use our close reading strategies. I have been using articles from here all year and I am impressed by the quality and range of topics. I would like to see more poetry analysis, but all in all this is impressive work and I want to thank you all for your efforts.

I am using this program by my daughter's teacher suggestion, and I found it is perfect! I print out many reading passages and also I have the guide that teachers used to use... It is simply awesome! Good source!

This is a great way to help prepare my students for a standardized test.

What a wonderful resource to use for my students to help prepare them for standardized testing. With the different grade levels available, this site is great for my struggling students to help them master different skills.

This is What my Students Need To Encourage Their Skills, They can show me what I Need to Teach them. Its GREAT! A Great Way to Help their Futures.

I love it. Its exactly what my students need.

I agree that this is an excellent resource for test preparation materials. Currently I'm printing the space exploration stories (I have a room full of boys) and the articles are informative and accessible.

I can't wait to have time to look into this website further! It looks as if it will be very helpful!

This is a fabulous way to prepare our students for standardized testing.
