Reading Literature

Every story and poem in the Reading Literature series is annotated with important information: definitions for tough vocabulary words, interpretations of difficult passages, explanations of unfamiliar allusions, and more.

Multiple short-answer questions for every story and poem require students to analyze literary elements — not merely list plot points.

All of these questions help your students achieve the high levels of reading proficiency the Common Core State Standards demand, and every question in the Teacher's Edition is labeled with the standard it covers.

Why should you use Reading Literature?

  • You'll get everything you need to teach your students how to analyze any work of literary fiction — in one book.
  • Every short-answer question was written with one of the Common Core State Standards for reading literature in mind.
  • Your students will learn more from every story and poem thanks to detailed annotations on vocabulary, tough passages, allusions, and  more.
  • The Teacher's Edition includes information on reader-task considerations, Common Core State Standards alignment for every question, and  qualitative and quantitative measures of text complexity.

Prepare your students to read each story with background information about genre, themes, structure, and the author.

Context fills in knowledge gaps, priming your students to learn as much as they can from a text.

In the Teacher's Edition, every question is marked with the Common Core State Standard it helps your students achieve.

Note: Call for Teacher's Editions so we can verify that you are a teacher. One Teacher Edition is free with a class set of 30 student books.
