Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Aliquippa District Curriculum
Focusing on literacy, reading comprehension in Grades 3 to 5 involves being able to distinguish between fiction and nonfiction, and to be able to tell the difference between facts and opinions. By middle school, in order for students to be successful in reading comprehension, they should be able to discern the components of fiction, and the components of nonfiction. They are expected to be able to interpret the main points the author makes to argue their position, as well as knowing the difference between facts and opinions.
Successful students become skilled at reading and comprehending fiction, nonfiction, drama, and poetry from a wide variety of sources. They are able to analyze and draw conclusions from the material they read. In addition, students should be able to synthesize the results into a completely new product of their own, such as a paper or story of their own. Development of an appropriate academic vocabulary aids students to achieve those goals of reading comprehension and writing.

Chalk Talk: Critical Reading In and Out of School
Skilled reading is valuable for people outside school, as well as for students while they are still in school. Employers require that employees be able to read instruction manuals in the workplace and use training manuals to move forward, in all different types of jobs and careers. In daily life, people read for information and pleasure, whether catching up on the daily news and sports through newspapers, or reading the latest magazines. Critical reading of these sources involves asking questions, clarifying assumptions and connecting the material to other sources.
