Mastering New York's Grade 3 English Language Arts Standards is specifically designed to help third graders perform their very best on the statewide Grade 3 ELA Test. Not just a test preparation text, this book uses an interactive approach to foster reading, listening, and writing skills.

Introduction. The first unit lays a solid foundation in reading comprehension by summarizing the key strategies found in the recommendations of several landmark studies.

Diagnostic Pretest. A pretest familiarizes students with the types of readings and questions found on the Grade 3 ELA Test. It also helps teachers diagnose student weaknesses and guides their preparation for the actual test.

The main part of the book is organized into two sessions, just like the actual test:

Session 1: Reading. Students are introduced to the main reading comprehension skills tested, such as decoding difficult words, identifying the main idea and supporting details, explaining cause-and-effect relationships, making comparisons, making predictions, and drawing conclusions. The book explains each skill in Unlocking the Answer, and provides students with opportunities for guided and independent practice. Multicultural passages in a wide variety of genres are taken from award-winning children's publications.

Session 2: Listening and Writing. Students improve their critical listening skills by listening to several practice passages as they experiment with different note-taking formats. They also learn how to analyze question words and practice answering short-response questions, both in a graphic organizer and in a written format. Emphasis is placed on using story details in their responses. Finally, this part of the book includes instruction and practice in the peer-editing task. Students review the basic rules of punctuation and capitalization, and then practice editing sample student paragraphs.

A Final Practice Test. The book concludes with a complete practice test that accurately reflects the number of questions and level of difficulty of the actual Grade 3 English Language Arts Test.
