This site helps students to read a passsage and directly assess what they read. by jkostelnick Nov 5

This is a site that would be good for my more advanced readers. It allows them to choose a topic, such as the United States, or penguins. It has a few to choose from, so the student can choose what he or she is interested in. Then, he or she reads the passage and answers the comprehension questions about it. The reading level is a bit tough, in my opinion, which is why I think it would be perfect to give some of my more advanced students more of a challenge. by kham1 Nov 5
