LIFT® (Literature Is For Thinking)
Grades 5 to 10
 
Help students grow as readers, as critical thinkers, as people.

A great story—filled with memorable characters a reader comes to know, empathize with, and understand—is a powerful springboard for promoting critical thinking in your students. Literature provides a model for thinking that can be examined, discussed, and compared to your students' own personal choices. Literature, and LIFT®, allows your students to see the world through others' eyes. LIFT® helps students grow as readers. As critical thinkers. And, most important of all, as people.

  • Helps students develop mastery in reading and interpreting full-length books.
  • Promotes active thinking—making reliable observations, drawing inferences, predicting outcomes, solving problems, making decisions.
  • Features a variety of activities to get students thinking critically about real-life issues.
  • Includes 18 user-friendly worksheets for each book, redesigned with better art, improved graphics.
  • Offers assessment opportunities that give students practice in both informal and standardized test formats.

Each LIFT® Teacher Resource includes:

  • 18 Reproducible Worksheets
  • 8-page Teacher Guide
  • Standardized Tests
