8th Grade Reading Comprehension Success

1. How to Use this Book :
Eighth grade is an exciting year full of changes and challenges. It’s also an important year academically. As an eighth grader, you’ll be required to take tests that measure your reading, writing, and math skills. This year is also your last chance to brush up your academic skills before high school. And because you’ll need to read for almost all of your classes, reading comprehension is perhaps the most important set of skills you’ll need to succeed.
In eighth grade and beyond, you’ll be asked to read, understand, and interpret a variety of texts, including stories and poems, reports, essays, and scienti?c and technical information. While a lot of your learning will still take place in the classroom, you’ll be expected to read more and more information on your own, outside class. You’ll need not only to understand what you read but also to respond to and assess what you read. And as the texts you  read  become  more  complex, you’ll  spend  a  lot  more  time  “reading between the lines” and drawing your own conclusions from the text.

As you work through the lessons in this book you will build your critical reading and thinking skills. Each of the 20 short lessons should take about a half hour to complete. You’ll start with the basics and move into more complex reading strategies. While each chapter can be an effective skill builder on its own, it is important that you proceed through this book in order, from Lesson 1 through Lesson 20. Each lesson builds on skills and ideas discussed in the previous chapters, and as you move through this book and your reading comprehension skills improve, the practice passages will become longer and more dif?cult.

The lessons are divided into four sections. Each section focuses on a different group of related reading comprehension strategies. These strategies are outlined at the beginning of each section and reviewed at the end of the section in a special Putting It All Together lesson.

Each lesson includes several exercises for you to practice the skills you have learned. To be sure you’re on the  right  track, at  the  end  of each  lesson  you’ll  ?nd answers  and  explanations  for  the  practice  questions. You’ll also ?nd a section called Skill Building until Next Time after each practice session. These are helpful suggestions for practicing your new skills.

This book also includes a pretest and post-test. To help you  measure  your  progress, do  the  Pretest  before  you begin Lesson 1. The Pretest will give you a sense of your strengths and weaknesses so you can focus on speci?c chapters. After you ?nish the lessons, take the Post-test. You’ll be able to see how much your reading comprehension skills have improved. You’ll also be able to ?nd out if there are areas in which you may still need practice.
