Each STARS book includes 12 easy to follow lessons (8 in Book A), one strategy per lesson. This scaffolded, step by step approach focuses student attention on an immediate goal mastery of one of the targetted strategies at a time. In each strategy lesson, students read several high-interest passages then apply what they've learned to strategy specific multiple choice questions. The reading passages expose students to a variety of fiction and non-fiction genres, including narrative, maths and science articles, web pages, letters and many more. These strategies show students how to apply reading they encounter in their daily life both inside and outside the classroom.
