True comprehension and understanding requires real work. Not “manufactured” text generated purely for test preparation. Not the endless “comprehension questions” and activity sheets used to assess surface understanding.
When presented with relevant, engaging, and challenging texts and guided through carefully sequenced cycles of collaboration and writing, students learn, thrive, and grow.
Our students delve deeply into texts and reread for multiple purposes, all with an eye on deeper understanding—of the text message, the author’s intent, and method and structure.
