This has really helped my child read faster, look in the text and get a better grades on test like this. I really like this website!!

My students loved this passage!

This is a great passage

I love ReadWorks and use it a lot. The paired passages are right on target. I also appreciate the coordinating standards with each question. However, could you please add DOK levels on the questions. It would make the requirements of standards based teaching and questioning much easier.

Thanks for helping make teaching easier!

I recently joined and I continue to be impressed with the varied subjects and reading levels! What a wonderful resource! Thank you ReadWorks!

They passages are the best. I do in home tutoring and they provide my students with wonderful reading passages, great vocabulary, and a variety of questions. They were also easy to find in the search engine.

I love using these passages with my students. The questions are great to provide different types of questions: multiple-choice, short answer, and extended answers. I also appreciate the paired texts. It saves preparation time for me in searching out stories to compare.

We are using the passages to extend our lessons. The students participate and add to class discussions.
Thanks for this resource.
