About The Program

Nonfiction passages to increase comprehension
People, places, and events from around the world and from ancient to modern times provide the subjects for 15 new and interesting stories in each book in this three-book, reading-comprehension series. The books can be used in many ways—as part of the reading and social studies curriculum in regular, remedial, and second-language classes as well as with home-school instruction. The clear directions allow students to work independently or in a group. By broadening students’ general knowledge of the world through its reading selections and by developing their understanding, thinking, and writing skills through its exercises, this series prepares students well for standardized or other kinds of tests.
