    pages of the book

    Fast Track is designed for students who need books with:
    • reading levels in their range (F–R)
    • a variety of text types and genres
    • age-appropriate concepts, design, and size
    • relevant content related to real life and to themes and topics being taught in the classroom
    • a natural progression in difficulty and challenge
    • audio support to model fluency, phrasing, and expression
    Fast Track can be used for guided, small-group, or independent instruction.
    The range of text types can be used as models for students' own writing. Text types include narrative, report, recount, explanation, exposition, description, and discussion.
    Fiction Books
    • provide a variety of styles and genres that appeal to older readers
    • feature compelling storylines and clearly defined characters
    Non-Fiction Books
    • feature contents page, a glossary of terms, and an index
    • visual literacy features such as timelines, graphs, charts, maps and fact boxes deliver or further explain information
    • link to themes covered in science and social studies curricula
    Teaching Cards come with 6-packs and include:
    • Book Features described
    • Before Reading: build background knowledge, visual literacy, and purpose
    • During Reading: monitoring comprehension, phonological awareness, high-frequency words, linking visuals and writing, vocabulary in context
    • After Reading: critical literacy, grammar, fluency, punctuation, assessment-based follow-up activities
    • Assessment and activity sheets are found online—see the website address found on your Teaching Card under the Activities section
