Reading Comprehension Connection
A truly comprehensive comprehension connection.
Grade Level: 3-5, 6-8, 9-12

This interactive site from Merit Software provides online reading comprehension lessons that can be used in the classroom or by students at home. The lessons come from the software versions that are available for sale at the site but the free lessons offer lots of practice for students.
The site is easily navigated through the use of pull down menus, simply select a subject and a skill level and simply start the lesson.

This is a great resource for teachers to supplement the reading curriculum or students to use as practice for increasing their reading comprehension. This resource is helpful for elementary and secondary students, ESL classes, and GED preparation programs. The lessons are divided into three categories; Vocabulary in context, including commonly confused and misused words, Reading for Understanding, which helps students master specific reading skills, and Reading Strategy, for developing the ability to make inferences. Each of the lesson categories is available in two levels: intermediate and advanced. As students work through the lessons they receive constructive feedback and at the end of the lesson a detailed report is generated. The report gives teachers and students a quick assessment that can be used for future improvement. Included, at the bottom of the page, are links to other interactive sites from Merit Software on a variety of topics that will be of use to teachers and students.
