READING COMPREHENSION Levels A-E / Grades 1-5
Students who have mastered the essential reading skills but still do not understand what they have read may be a result of lacking a basic understanding of the critical comprehension skills.

Some students need more time to develop basic comprehension skills so they can actively read with purpose. Building upon a solid foundation, students better understand and remember what was read, which prepares them to read more rigorous texts and apply critical thinking skills.
