  1. Hi! I’m trying to find out about the types of questions used by Reading Street to measure Comprehension. Do you have any sample questions you can share with me? Dr. Deb

    • They use higher order thinking questions like:
      Describe each character’s reactions to Felix’s criticisms.
      Why was Tony’s approach to Scrabble probably more pleasing to Mrs. Martin than Chuck’s approach was?
      What does the caption of the picture tell you about Dragging Canoe as a grown man?

      Even their multiple choice questions are “hard” for 6th graders. They really have to use critical thinking skills to answer.

      Does this help? Are you authoring another reading series or do you use another reading series? I’ve got a lot more I could talk about! 🙂

  2. Hi Shannon, thank you for the response, I’ve been out of town and away from the internet. I work for a company that has just authored a comprehension intervention product and we’re trying to figure out how to measure the success of the students. Needless to say, it is a daunting task! A teacher told me about Reading Street and suggested that it did a pretty good job of measuring student proficiency.

  3. Hi, I am new to 6th grade this year. Can you give me a plan for what all you cover each day for a story. What, for how long, how much, what you may skip over, and what you use for assessing.
    THANKS! The information that you have provided is amazing!
