2013 - 2014 CAPs

Collection Contents


Many high school students in the 21st century are lacking the reading skills that their peers learned in the primary level. It is difficult for them to decode words and passages that are deemed appropriate for their grade level, therefore not allowing them to achieve the high standards that New York State has incorporated into the Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS). As educators, it is imperative that we help these students learn and continue to work on the necessary skills they need to become college and career ready. The lessons that we created return students to the basic reading comprehension lessons that they did not learn at the primary level, keeping in mind age-appropriate material and challenging them to the higher standards.
