Middle School Reading Comprehension Essentials: The Play Is the Thing! (Grades 6-8)

Need a little boost in visualizing a story or understanding the information in a textbook?

The following standards will be the focus of instruction:   

  • Citing textual evidence to support analysis and inferences drawn from the text.  
  • Summarizing the text objectively. 
  • Describing how characters change as a plot moves toward a resolution.  
  • Comparing and contrasting the reading of a text to listening to or viewing an audio or video of the text.
