InfoPairs

Paired Nonfiction Articles for Cross-Text Reading in Grades 1-5
InfoPairs is designed for explicit, small group guided reading in Grades 1-5. Using short, paired, leveled text cards, students analyze and synthesize information from two related sources to arrive at a deeper level of comprehension. Teachers and students engage first in a focused reading of each text individually, using one of a variety of comprehension strategies. Then they engage in a rich discussion of both text cards, using comprehension strategies that encourage students to make text-to-text connections, compare and contrast, summarize, and synthesize for new or deeper understandings of the subject matter. Each kit includes 28 nonfiction text cards largely divided between science and social studies topics (14 pairs in 6-packs, for a total of 168 cards per kit); 14 lesson plan booklets, including reproducible masters; the guidebook for instruction; and a sturdy storage box with tab organizers. Reading levels for text cards vary by grade: 1 (E-M), 2 (F-N), 3 (J-R), 4 (O-T), 5 (R-W).

For even MORE paired nonfiction articles for cross-text reading, InfoPairs Mini-Kits is also available for Grades 1-5. The InfoPairs Mini-Kits text cards integrate standards-based science and social studies topics across a range of nonfiction text types. Each Mini-Kit includes eight paired leveled text cards in 6-packs for either science or social studies standards-based topics, four-page guided reading lesson plans for each pair, teacher guidebook and a convenient storage box.
