Correlation to State Standards
The Scobre Press Classroom Program, including our easy-to-use Teacher’s Resource Guides, was created using research-based best practices for reading instruction. We have incorporated graphic organizers throughout our before, during, and after lesson plans to teach reading comprehension strategies and fluency, while building vocabulary, helping students to practice writing for purpose and fostering class discussions. We do all of this with high-interest content your students will be thrilled to read about.
