2 use information from their reading to increase vocabulary and enhance language usage. TR: Standardized Test Preparation Workbook, Chapter 29; Prentice Hall Everyday Spelling, Grade 6; Dictionary Handbook ; Academic Workplace Skills Activity Book RATIONALE: The goal for students at all levels is that they know and can use strategies--various ways of unlocking the meaning of words and larger blocks of text--to become successful readers. The strategies are applied in increasingly difficult reading material at each grade level. At all levels, students should be challenged to read literature and other materials that stimulate their interests and intellectual abilities. Reading from a wide variety of texts, both assigned and student selected, provides experience in gaining information and pleasure from diverse forms and perspectives. Note: A reference list of sources of book lists can be found at the end of the Reading and Writing Standards. None of these book lists have been endorsed by the Colorado State Board of Education. GRADES 5-8 As students in grades 5-8 extend their knowledge, what they know and are able to do includes using a full range of strategies to comprehend technical writing, newspapers, magazines, poetry, short stories, plays, and novels in addition to the types of reading material mentioned above. Students extend their thinking and understanding as they read stories about people from similar and different backgrounds.

SE/TE: 236, 243, , TR: Writing Support Transparency 11-H,; Writing Support Activity Book 11-4 RATIONALE: In this age of information and technology, people need reading and information-retrieval skills that will enable them to access facts, images, and text from many sources. The sheer volume of data makes it necessary for information seekers to be able to wade through a maze of facts, figures, and images, and to identify what is useful and relevant. Knowing how to locate, evaluate, and make use of an ever-increasing amount of information demands a broader repertoire of reading strategies. This implies an expanded definition of literacy that includes reading for information in a technological age. Students need to become discerning consumers of information. GRADES 5-8 As students in grades 5-8 extend their knowledge, what they know and are able to do includes using organizational features of printed text such as prefaces, afterwords, and appendices; using organizational features of electronic information (for example, microfiche headings and numbering, headings for accessing nested information in hypertext media, electronic media CD-ROM, laser disc), and library and interlibrary catalog databases; SE/TE: 679, 680 SE/TE: , , TR: Academic and Workplace Skills Activity Book 54-57, 58, 59 locating and selecting relevant information; SE/TE: 108, 134, 158, 187, 229, 230, 232, 255, 258, 277, 279, 636, 637, 679, 692, 703, 726 TR: Writing Support Transparency: 6-E, 7-D Support Activity Book: 7-1 using available technology to research and produce an end-product that is accurately documented; and giving credit for borrowed information in a bibliography.

13 RATIONALE: Literature records human expression in such forms as speeches, poems, novels, stories, nonfiction, essays, plays, films, biographies, and autobiographies by male and female speakers and writers. The study of literary traditions offers a perspective on enduring questions, a glimpse into human motives and conflicts, and a sense of the beauty and power of spoken and written language. In addition, literature transmits and transforms culture; it also enables students to think, communicate, and participate in society. The study of literature and writers of the United States honors the heritage and cultures of all people who live or have lived in America, and it thus helps students develop an understanding of our national experience. A comprehensive literature program fosters habits of reading that carry over into adult life. Note: A reference list of sources of book lists can be found at the end of the Reading and Writing Standards. None of these book lists have been endorsed by the Colorado State Board of Education. GRADES 5-8 As students in grades 5-8 extend their knowledge, what they know and are able to do includes reading, responding to, and discussing a variety of novels, poetry, short stories, non-fiction, contentarea and technical material, and plays; reading, responding to, and discussing literature that represents points of view from places, people, and events that are familiar and unfamiliar; distinguishing the elements that characterize and define a literary "classic"; comparing the diverse voices of our national experience as they read a variety of United States literature; using literary terminology accurately, including setting, character, conflict, plot, resolution, theme, foreshadowing, and figurative language; and using new vocabulary from literature in other context.
