Give your students everything they need to examine literary fiction.

Reading Literature helps you teach your high school students the literary analysis skills they need to study and appreciate any work of literature.

Every story and poem in the Reading Literature series is annotated with important information: definitions of tough vocabulary words, interpretations of difficult passages, explanations of unfamiliar allusions, and more. Multiple short-answer questions for every story and poem require students to conduct in-depth literary analysis using several skills-inference, analysis, comprehension, synthesis, and evaluation.

Plus, every question helps your students achieve the high levels of reading proficiency the Common Core State Standards demand.

The Teacher's Edition includes information on reader-task considerations, Common Core State Standards alignment information, and qualitative and quantitative measures of text complexity.
