Exemplar Text Packs

Looking for a carefully sequenced set of short texts that build on each other in terms of both content and text complexity? Where reprint permissions have already been acquired?

American Reading Company offers more than 20 Exemplar Text Packs, each designed for a specific grade-band and on a specific Science or Social Studies Topic. Student editions are simply the full color texts, bound as a packet. Write your own tasks or purchase available teacher editions that include text complexity analysis and suggested text dependent questions.

Exemplar Text Packs
