This course presents the reading comprehension strand of the Project Read program. The Report Form curriculum teaches students how to collect, organize, and analyze information from expository text. Beginning in the primary grades, it provides children with comprehension strategies so they can recall information, respond to questions at both the literal and interpretive levels, and study for tests. The curriculum materials include reading selections, graphic organizers, student practice sheets, and questioning strategies based on Bloom’s Taxonomy. The Story Form Literature Connection curriculum presents the underlying structure and format of narrative text. Beginning in Kindergarten the curriculum teaches a process of analyzing a story by identifying the elements of plot. The curriculum introduces eight story genres and authors’ literary techniques such as simile, metaphor, puns, symbolism, and methods of characterization. The Story Form curriculum, designed for intermediate and secondary students, teaches the parts of a story and methods of characterization to students in grades five through high school. The concepts and skills embodied in both curricula are taught directly in their dependent order using multisensory strategies, materials, and activities. Students learn a set of study skills that assist higher level thinking and test taking.
