Book 2 teaches strategies for analyzing fiction and informational passages, reviews text structures such as sequence and cause and effect, and shows how to use graphic organizers to track comparisons and contrast. It also covers theme, plot, character, and figurative language.
Book 3 teaches a three-step process for answering extended response items, reviews the scoring rubrics and shows how to evaluate responses. It also provides practice strategies for responding to science short-answer items and details the process to answer extended responses on the Social Studies and Reasoning Through Language Arts Tests.
