READ

In this component, students read an appropriately leveled passage to learn more about a key concept. A variety of extension links are provided throughout the lessons and embedded in the lesson pages, including dictionary terms, reading tips, audio support, note taking tools. Students can use these tools while they are reading and viewing to help engage them in the text. 
 
NOTE: Students reading at the ~400L receive more simplified content that is approprate for their reading level. They will be able to answer the vast majority of Review items based on the content in their Read component but may, for a small number of items, be referred to the Stretch tab for additional background information that will be helpful in formulating their response.
