User Comments

Thank you for providing such quality texts! I was wondering, is there an answer key for this set of questions?

Thanks for posting. At this point in time, we do not provide the answer keys for the paired texts. 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.

This site will truly help my class reading comprehension and help me to implement dozens of strategies. Thanks for all you do.
