The Applying the Standards: Evidence-Based Reading series emphasizes close reading by requiring students to answer text-dependent questions in both literary and informational texts. This is a series of six 64-page books for students in kindergarten to grade 5. Various reading and vocabulary skills are covered and a culminating reflection question for each passage engages students' higher-level thinking skills. Of particular emphasis throughout the series are current state standards and the teaching of evidence-based reading.
