Strategies to Achieve Reading Success (STARS Plus) is a prescriptive reading series that provides essential instruction in the same 12 reading strategies as the diagnostic CARS Plus Series. The STARS Plus Series provides precise instruction in and practice with the strategies students need to master in order to achieve reading success.
These new, updated editions expand on the research-proven success of the earlier series to make boosting your students' reading comprehension with targeted instruction in the core strategies even easier. If you've used CARS and STARS before you'll notice updated versions of familiar stories and some new additions in each series. Stories have been carefully selected and reformulated to more specifically tailor them to each specific level of the program.
The in-depth Lesson Plans are the heart of each STARS Plus Teacher Guide. These are six-page guides for each of the STARS Plus student-book lessons that include a facsimile of every student book page, containing the correct answers as well as teacher tips. Each Lesson Plan also includes some of these special features: ELL Support; Genre Focus; Teacher's Corner; Reteaching; and Connecting with Literature, all designed to broaden and enhance the specific instruction being given in that lesson. Finally, the STARS Plus Teacher Guides conclude with a reproducible version of the answer form that students can use to record their answers for each lesson, and a completed answer form for the use of the teacher.
The CARS & STARS Plus Strategies Posters present the strategies used in each of the 10 levels (P–H) of the CARS & STARS Plus program. The Strategies Posters are designed to be easy to interpret for students of all ages, with a concise explanation of each strategy presented underneath a specific icon that represents the strategy visually. These elements ensure that both students and the teacher can quickly and easily recall any of the 12 strategies no matter their level of reading comprehension.
This mixed pack contains one teacher guide each for levels A, B, C, D and E, and five Strategies Posters (A–E), each corresponding to one of the 10 levels of the CARS & STARS Plus program.
