Publisher Description:

MORE Reading Comprehension Level 3 includes 25 selections in the following 6 subject areas. A sample passage title is given for each subject area:

  • Social Studies - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
  • Science - Which is the Biggest Planet?
  • Philosophy, Logic, and Language - Rubber Sheet Geometry
  • Combined Subjects - Communicating with Outer Space
  • Literature - Tyrannosaurus Rex
  • The Arts - Picasso

MORE Reading Comprehension follows the same 7-step format for presenting the passage as the Reading Comprehension books:

  • About the Passage - introduces the selection to the reader and activates prior knowledge
  • Reason for Reading - explains the reading skill emphasized
  • The Selection - thematically organized selections across subject matter.
  • Thinking it Over - lists two to three broad questions to be answered in writing
  • Studying the Passage - asks questions about the main idea, facts, and sequence, and asks students to draw conclusions, make assumptions, and interpret.
  • Using the Words - encourages students to use new vocabulary words in a paragraph
  • Writing about It - has students answer questions about the contents of the selection and offer their interpretation or opinion

Additionally, the books include a writing component that gives students practice in writing a short paragraph as well as a longer piece that requires them to think critically and explain their interpretation of the selection.

  • Story recall
  • Sequencing
  • Identifying facts
  • Drawing conclusions

Each workbook in the Reading Comprehension Series has selections covering social studies, science, literature, mathematics, philosophy, logic, language, and the arts.

Out of the many comprehension workbooks I have used and reviewed, this series is my personal favorite. It contains great variety in subject matter and excellent thinking questions. Before reading each of the 31 reading selections per book, a short introduction gives a little background information and states the reading skill to be emphasized. Selections include pieces on general topics, mathematics, philosophy, literature, science, social studies, logic and thinking, language, and the arts. Because this is a secular program, you may choose to preview some of the reading selections, particularly in the upper grades. Following the selections are questions which require students to find the main idea, identify sequence, draw conclusions, make assumptions, match vocabulary words to meanings, and identify and interpret facts. Although this series is my favorite, our children are not as certain, since these books really made them think. Please note that there are no answers included in the workbooks. All answers are provided in the small Teacher Keys, available for each workbook as a separate but inexpensive purchase.
