Reading & Writing Sourcebooks offer a comprehensive, literature-based approach to help struggling learners build the strategies they need to become confident readers. Each Sourcebook begins with fiction and nonfiction selections that are two years below grade level and gradually progresses to more grade-level appropriate texts. A unique journal-style design draws students into each selection while the consistent, step-by-step lessons guide them through different strategies for reading, understanding, and writing about literature.
Literature-based and strategy-focused, Reading & Writing Sourcebooks engage struggling learners in the reading and writing process to help them build the skills they need to become successful readers and writers.
Ideal resources for intervention, Sourcebooks feature lessons structured around a five-step lesson plan that:
guides students through the reading and writing process;
provides prewriting activities to focus students on each selection;
includes comprehension-building activities;
teaches grammar, usage, and mechanics to strengthen writing skills.
