Coverage of comprehension skills is thorough and includes extras such as literary elements, some specific word studies, and exercises in "document" reading (i.e. maps, tables, graphs, dictionary, encyclopedia, etc.).
Each lesson begins with direct instruction of each skill and is followed by opportunities for students to apply and transfer the skill to a meaningful context. Comprehension Plus study skills, vocabulary, phonics/word study, and writing connections add up to improved test scores and classroom performance.
