ReadingScape: New Online Library for Independent Reading
Reading Opportunities in PRJ with Updated Content
One of the greatest benefits of Passport Reading Journeys
with Updated Content is the amount
of reading students do. They read fascinating literary and informational text from the Student Anthology eBook, including "Reading in the Real World" and "Exploring Careers" text selections. After reading, they complete vocabulary and comprehension worksheets and practice writing in response to reading in the student eBook.
A PRJ Reading Expedition (unit) follows a 10-day lesson format. Each lesson is 50 minutes and is taught in two lesson pairs with every fifth lesson set aside for independent reading practice. Engaging videos grab students' attention to introduce each Expedition theme, after which students read from the Student Anthology, which is the main instruction.
The reading in each Expedition captivates students by providing age-appropriate content that they can relate to and apply to their lives. The selections give them exposure to real world, 21st century scenarios. And new technolgy components in this release of PRJ prepare them for college and career.
Individualized Practice Builds Academic Vocabulary
In lessons five and 10 of the Expedition, students are given opportunities for independent reading through the PRJ
Library and SOLO, an online reading component that supports the instruction. And now, an all-new, interactive, online library called ReadingScape reinforces PRJ
ReadingScape is full of engaging, multimedia books that students read independent of their PRJ
class, reinforcing instructional strategies that they learn and practice in PRJ
. The independent reading builds content knowledge, boosts reading stamina, and encourages reading for enjoyment.
