Nonfiction and Textbooks

In this program, students learn to read and study textbooks and other nonfiction. They learn how to identify the main idea and supporting details of a nonfiction paragraph and how to comprehend and retain information in nonfiction. Your child will learn how to apply these skills to textbooks by practicing the skills in chapters from science and social studies textbooks.


Interactive lessons provide students with hands-on practice in study skills.
