Where you can find test-length, high-quality reading and listening passages that are similar to those on New York's 8th-grade English Language Arts Test? Mastering New York's Grade 8 English Language Standards provides the answer. The book applies the latest research to help eighth-graders improve their reading, listening, and writing skills.

Introduction. Like the other books in the series, this text begins by introducing students to the key reading strategies of proficient readers such as asking questions, making predictions, determining what is important, and drawing connections between the text and what they already know.

Session 1: Reading. The introduction is followed by six chapters reviewing key reading comprehension skills assessed on the statewide test. Special emphasis is placed on those higher-level critical thinking skills most frequently tested, such as identifying an author's purpose. Each of these chapters follows a similar pattern of organization, with a high-quality test-length introductory reading passage, a step-by-step approach for answering questions, guided practice, and independent practice. Students are kept engaged with passages by such prominent authors as O. Henry, Robert Frost, Langston Hughes, Emily Dickinson and Amy Tan.

Session 2: Listening and Writing. Students review listening and note-taking techniques. In addition, students learn how to write short and extended responses.

Session 3: Reading and Writing. Students learn how to read paired passages and write about them.

A Final Practice Test. The book concludes with a complete final practice test.
