Product Description

Two major tenets of the Common Core Standards are that all students should read complex texts and produce cogent responses grounded in evidence from those texts. Scaffolded Reading Experiences™ (SREs) are the ideal tool for helping students accomplish these challenging tasks. SREs are detailed, adaptable, and research-based lesson plans designed to support teaching widely used fiction and nonfiction texts. Each SRE includes a set of pre-reading, during-reading, and post-reading activities to assist students in successfully reading, understanding, learning from, and enjoying a particular selection. The effectiveness of SREs has been validated in formal research studies. Each SRE has been specifically designed to foster students’ higher order thinking and promote deep and lasting understanding of what they read.
