Hormones Reading

Description

Do your students struggle with reading comprehension? Do you find yourself at a loss for how to promote vocabulary retention? Are waning attention spans becoming a larger and larger problem in your classroom from year to year? If you answered yes to any of those questions, this hormones reading resource is for you.

 

Teaching literacy is every teacher’s job, not just the heroes in English and Language Arts. And the only way we can help our students improve is by modeling and giving them chances to practice. Read out loud together, annotate, and spark classroom discussion today!

 

I created this line of guided reading resources to help teachers, parents, and students by providing a detailed yet easy-to-read (avg. reading level: grades 6-8) reference on various topics. The questions that accompany the text are designed to be rigorous and require students to predict, reflect, connect, and think critically about the information being presented.

 

Let’s get our students reading, writing, and integrating vocabulary with this resource that is compatible with multiple teaching styles. Your purchase includes PDF and digital copies perfect for pre-reading, homework and review, or even sending to absent students.
