Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:

"These articles lend themselves to active reading, giving kids a great place to annotate and work out their thinking as they read."
--Stephanie Harvey and Anne Goudvis

In response to the overwhelming demand for more high-quality, age-appropriate nonfiction texts, Stephanie Harvey and Anne Goudvis have developed the four-volume series Toolkit Texts: Short Nonfiction for Guided and Independent Practice. Each volume provides a library of age-appropriate nonfiction articles in a reproducible format. Personally selected and edited by Harvey and Goudvis, each article is matched to the strategies described in Toolkit series.

The articles in each volume:

  • focus on high-interest topics that help build strong readers while also building background knowledge in numerous content areas
  • give students an opportunity to read and process the kinds of passages typically found on state tests
  • present information in a range of formats typical of nonfiction texts including time lines, sidebars, interviews, and maps and diagrams
  • are supported by teaching strategies that describe how to integrate the articles into your Toolkit instruction.

Plus, the accompanying CD-ROM provides all of the informational texts in English and Spanish.
