Teaching Notes

It is important for students to develop skills for reading nonfiction texts.  Capstone Classroom books exhibit a variety of text structures and contain strong text features, making them well suited for instruction of nonfiction reading skills.

The Teaching Notes that accompany many Capstone Classroom titles contain mini-lessons that are adaptable to any classroom routine or reading program.  They include guided activities that support instruction of text structures, text features, comprehension strategies, and word study.  Each set of notes also contains a reproducible graphic organizer that supports a mini-lesson activity.  (See a sample)
