Sunrise 2nd Edition
Available in June 2021
Reading 800 uses five LightUnits and is based on the reader Where Roads Diverge, continuing the theme of choices begun in the seventh-grade reader.
Using the LightUnits, students build vocabulary; examine literary elements such as conflict, theme, and tone; interpret literary techniques such as metaphors, symbols, allusions, irony, and foreshadowing; identify literary genres; practice types of writing; learn critical thinking skills; and respond to truths illustrated in the stories.
Two or three lessons per week cover a full year’s work, or you may choose to cover the course in one semester.
The Teacher’s Guide includes LightUnit pages with answers, teaching instructions, oral reading activity ideas, discussion questions, and alternate tests.
The two Answer Keys (one for the LightUnits and one for quizzes and tests) are not required if the Teacher’s Guide is purchased.
