The Common Core and Reading: Literature Anchor Standards

The purpose of reading in language arts classes is to promote comprehension by helping students to grasp the meaning of various texts. Reading assignments need to help teach students how to acquire new information, knowledge, and understanding.

With Book Punch students learn to read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it. The program helps pupils learn to cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.

The program's activities help students learn to determine central ideas or themes of a text, analyze their development, and learn to summarize key supporting details and ideas.

Book Punch's hints, tips, and supports help students learn to analyze how and why individuals, events, and ideas develop and interact over the course of a text.

In a class setting, there will be a wide range of reading ability among the students. Maintaining student interest is very important. Teaching with well-known books, books that are known winners, is a good way for teachers to increase their odds for success.

Book Punch meets students at their own level. Rather than providing different texts for different ability levels in the same class, all students read the same text. The program has built-in supports for struggling students and challenges the more advanced students.
