User Comments

Is there a list of paired passages or do I read each one to identify which ones to pair together?

We have already paired this text with another text. You can find the paired text by clicking on the "Paired Text" tab. It should be between the "StepReads" and "Standards" tabs.

It would be helpful to have an answer sheet for the paired text questions.

Yes!!!!

The answer key for "Transcript of the Gettysburg Address" can be found by going to its passage page. For your convenience, here's a link to it: "Transcript of the Gettysburg Address" Passage Page

As for the "Paired Text Questions," we do not provide the answer keys for them at this point in time. As you know, we are committed to providing the highest quality, research-based content, and providing educators with more and more of it. In order to provide the most value to educators and their students, we felt it was more important to write more paired texts and the questions than writing the answers at this point in time. We wish we could do everything at once, but it will take some time. It is our intention to provide answers for the "Paired Text Questions," but we cannot give you a definitive time frame as to when this will happen.
