Many teachers find the step-by-step lesson plans are both timely and historical. As technology makes life more convenient, people are more distracted. A highly-rated lesson plan, Close Reading: Introduction offers students practice in paying attention to detail, not only in nonfiction texts but also in their physical surroundings. Another lesson plan uses excerpts about the Underground Railroad and asks children to write diary entries based off imagining they were escaping slavery. What are their emotions? What would be the challenges and dangers?

There are also dozens of printable worksheets with reading material students find fascinating. Kids can read about interesting characters such as the famous escape artist, Harry Houdini, or the infamous deaf piano prodigy, Beethoven. The short biographies are followed by questions that get children thinking beyond the letters on the page. Other worksheets are an investigation on crop circles, the moon or the history of cars.
