I Read to Write™

I Read to Write is a program teaches students to read and analyze multiple texts and write a well-structured response.  Each book contains unit content areas of Science, Social Studies and Math.

  • Read – Students closely read two or three related selections and identify text evidence in the pieces
  • Think – Students deconstruct and analyze the texts and use evidence to answer text-dependent questions
  • Write – Students analyze the writing task and write to multiple sources in one of the three text types (Narrative, Informative/Explanatory and Opinion or Argument).
