Evidence-Based Reading Workbook for second-graders offers 64 pages of reading practice. It is aligned with the Common Core State Standards and includes a reading comprehension rubric, standards alignment chart and pages of reading passages with evidence-based questions to encourage higher-level thinking and thoughtful answers. Each question is designed so that students learn to support their answers with evidence from the text. A variety of literature and informational passages are included to engage learners in a range of texts. The Applying the Standards: Evidence-Based Reading Workbook emphasizes close reading by requiring students to answer text-dependent questions in both literary and informational texts.
