Mastering New York's Grade 4 English Language Arts Standards, like all the other books in this series, applies the latest educational research to help students master New York's learning standards in reading, listening, and writing.

Introduction. The book opens with the metacognitive reading strategies described in Mosaic of Thought. Students also review the elements of stories and learn how to analyze poems.

The remainder of the book is organized into three sessions, just like the actual test:

Session 1: Reading. The first section helps students master key reading comprehension skills. At the fourth grade level, these include scanning for details, making inferences, and locating information in an index and table of contents. Each chapter follows a similar pattern of organization. An opening reading provides a backdrop for practice questions. Students are then presented with a special Unlocking the Answer feature for each type of comprehension or critical-thinking skill These explicit, metacognitive instructions provide students with a step-by-step approach for answering each type of question. They are followed by practice questions focusing on that skill. Each chapter closes with a Practice Exercise in which students read a test-length passage and answer questions about it.

Session 2: Listening and Writing. Students learn new techniques for improving their listening and note-taking skills and apply them to several practice passages. They also review the main steps for answering short-response questions.

Session 3: Reading and Writing. Students learn how to answer short and extended-response questions on linked passages similar to those on Session 3 of the actual test. Students learn how to plan an extended response and consider the characteristics of a well-written response.

A Final Practice Test. The book concludes with a practice test that accurately reflects the number of questions and level of difficulty of the actual statewide test. This practice test allows teachers to evaluate student progress and to identify potential weaknesses. In addition, each unit of the book concludes with a full-length practice session.

Appendix. The Appendix reviews the basic writing conventions that students should apply in writing their answers. Here students are exposed to the most important rules for good writing mechanics and usage.
