Mastering New York's Grade 5 English Language Arts Standards applies the latest educational research to help fifth-graders improve their reading, listening, and writing skills.

Introduction. At all levels of reading, from preschool to adult, good readers apply key reading strategies: asking questions, making connections, forming mental images, summarizing, predicting and solving problems. Like the other books in this series, the first chapter reinforces these essential skills.

Diagnostic Pretest. Students then take a diagnostic pretest, which includes a contemporary short story, a poem and an informational passage.

Session 1: Reading. Subsequent chapters review and reinforce comprehension strategies with grade-appropriate readings, explanations, and sample questions. Special emphasis is placed on providing students with interesting texts from a variety of disciplines, presenting broad themes and multicultural experiences. For example, students practice decoding unfamiliar words from a paragraph of Guy de Maupassant's story The Piece of String. They answer main-idea questions on a reading passage about wolves, and answer sequence and cause-and-effect questions on an article about the first African-American cadet to graduate from West Point. Students are constantly exposed to the different types of questions used to test a particular learning objective.

Session 2: Listening and Writing. Students next practice their listening and note-taking skills. They practice taking notes in different formats and learn how to analyze question words -- what, how, and why -- to answer short-response questions. This is followed by two complete chapters summarizing the most important rules of capitalization, punctuation, grammar and usage. Fifth-graders learn how to edit a paragraph and practice editing sample paragraphs. Additional editing practice is provided in the separate Mastering New York's Grade 5 Writing Standards, which complements this book.

A Final Practice Test. The book concludes with a complete practice test, having the same number of questions and level of difficulty as the actual test. This helps teachers and students to identify any remaining weaknesses that still need to be addressed.
