Wild Side - Close Calls
Grades: 6 - 12
The Wild Side mesmerizes students with astonishing tales of true-life adventures. One appreciative teacher writes: "I have difficulty removing the books from their hands at the end of the period!" Follow-up questions reinforce key comprehension skills and critical thinking questioms encourage students to consider the author's purpose, make inferences, identify cause and effect, and make predictions. Students eagerly learn without realizing how well-designed the series is for reinforcing state reading standards. The lessons are designed for reading levels 4-6.
