Comprehensive Reading and Vocabulary Level 2 is a direct, systematic, and highly interactive reading comprehension program. The course aligns with the ITBS Reading test, and we use the ITBS reading test to measure student's achievement in this class.
The class is designed with a one-year curriculum for Grade 2-3 students:
Level 2A: Starting students with the "Make Connections Book 2" to build up comprehensive reading skills. We use "Vocabulary Workshop for Comprehensive 2" for expanding students' vocabulary with a comprehensive reading context. Level 2A usually take 12 to 14 weeks to finish.
Level 2B: We use "Mastering Complex Text Using Multiple Reading Sources 2" for more complex text reading and scientific readings, we will use "Wordly Wise Book 2" in the 2B level to power up students' vocabulary further by putting the words in multiple contexts. 8-10 books from Comprehension Library 2 will be used in/out of class for students to apply their newly acquired skills and strategies. Level 2B usually take about 20 weeks to complete.
Students will build up the following skills along the year: 1. understand skills such as cause and effect, drawing conclusions, and predicting outcomes. 2. locate, interpret, and organize key information in a text. 3. analyze words in a text using vocabulary strategies. 4. utilize text features such as maps, graphs, tables, photos, and glossaries to aid comprehension. 5. interpret a variety of genres including biographies, science & social studies texts, Greek myth, and much more!
