Mastering Grade 5 English Language Arts: A Blueprint for Success will improve your students¿ reading, listening and writing skills. This book does more than provide basic instruction.  It forces your students to practice and apply what they learn. This unique approach will make your students¿ scores soar on the New York State Grade 5 English Language Arts Test.

The book is divided into six units.  Each unit contains a complete practice test with the same types of reading passages, listening passage, peer-editing paragraph, and questions found on the actual New York State Grade 5 English Language Arts Test. Important reading comprehension skills are scaffolded and balanced throughout all six units. Almost every question on the state test contains an important clue. By learning to recognize these clues, your students can develop strategies for successfully answering each type of question.

UNITS 1 AND 2
Each reading passage and the listening task include one or two special ¿hints¿ in the form of open-ended questions. These questions will engage your students as they focus on the multiple-choice question and its clue. Next, they will select their answer choice. What follows is the correct answer with an explanation of why that choice is correct and the other choices are incorrect. This will help your students better understand each question and its clue.

After your students complete three reading passages, you will read a listening passage to them found in the Teacher¿s Guide. They will again be provided with questions, special hints and an explanation of the answer to each question. Finally, after the listening passage, they will be asked to edit a sample student paragraph just like the ones found on the test.

UNITS 3 AND 4
Here your students are given further help and practice in answering test questions. In these units, the correct answer and its explanation do not appear right after every question. Instead, these are provided only after your students have read and answered all of the questions for each particular reading or listening passage. By the time they reach the end of Unit 4, they will have been exposed to similar questions a multitude of times and begun to develop their own cognitive strategies for finding the correct answer.

UNITS 5 AND 6
 In these final two units, your students will apply through practice what they have learned in these two units. Students are presented with two complete practice tests identical in form and format to the statewide test. Unlike earlier units, there are no hints, correct answers, or explanations in the text.  In Units 5 and 6, students demonstrate their independence and practice answering questions in test conditions. After each practice test, you can go over their answers to identify areas where they still may need additional help. After your students work their way through the six units of this book, it will be as though they have taken the state test six times. They will have read an assortment of passages and answered every kind of question found on the test multiple times. Your students will also have answered questions on six listening passages and made corrections to six student-written paragraphs.

Mastering Grade 5 English Language Arts: A Blueprint for Success will improve your students¿ reading, listening and writing skills. This book does more than provide basic instruction.  It forces your students to practice and apply what they learn. This unique approach will make your students¿ scores soar on the New York State Grade 5 English Language Arts Test.
