Take the mystery out of reading comprehension with this collection of high-interest, low-readability passages that are sure to enthrall students. Each mini mystery comes with comprehension questions that clue students in on how to analyze character, understand cause and effect, make inferences, predict, and more. A teacher page for each mystery includes before- and after-reading suggestions, writing and discussion prompts, and a vocabulary list. A great way to boost comprehension and build critical-thinking skills!
Each mystery asks readers to stop and reflect at two or three pivotal points during the action. The comprehension questions at these “cliff-hanger” moments provide memorable learning opportunities that are enhanced with excitement!
