2.0 out of 5 stars Not Classroom Friendly 16 Jan 2011
By notmuch extratime - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is not the level of difficulty I was expecting. The questions seemed obvious, not probing, as they were advertised. Using the standard method of evaluating grade level (syllables per sentence)many were not 10-12th grade level equivalent. It was my desire to use this book with high functioning as well as low functioning readers. I read several stories, and did not feel the questions really assessed higher level comprehension.Having said that, I might have still used the book as a supplement for my weaker readers; however, there were no, even ballpark, answers included in the manual. I do not have time to read and reread 45 stories to check a student's work. With a little more research and work ,the concept of this text would have been achieved;as it it, it wasn't.

2.0 out of 5 stars Where are the answers? 7 Dec 2011
By M. Aldrich - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed having so many short, ready-to-use texts to use with my students, which saves me time searching the Internet. However, there are no answers nor is there a teacher's edition. All the questions are open-ended, which is good for students but bad for teachers who have piles and piles of papers to grade.
