Reading Drills

Grade Levels: 6-12

Reading Drills are ideal for helping your students improve their test scores while building reading stamina. Students practice reading longer passages in a timed setting. They also improve both their literal and critical thinking skills and have additional opportunities for longer personal responses.

Reading Drills

 Like a standardized test, both fiction and nonfiction selections are presented.


  • Vocabulary words are introduced within the reading passages.
  • Exercises require students to use context to get meaning.
  • Reading stamina is built with passages of uniform length: Introductory, 500 words per passage; Middle level 750 words; Advanced, 1000 words per passage.
