Hopenhagen Publishing Hopenhagen Publishing provides quality educational materials that align with the Common Core Standards Introduction to the Literature for Learning Standards-Based Study Guide The Literature for Learning Standards-Based Study Guide is based on the English/Language Arts national content standards of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE), the International Reading Association (IRA) and the National Common Core Standards.

The Literature for Learning Standards-Based Study Guide was developed to provide reading and writing experiences for students to help increase reading interest as well as prepare students for standardized testing. The Literature for Learning Standards-Based Study Guide was created to help bring back the joy of reading novels into the classroom. This study guide uses an entire novel, rather than an abridged version, to teach students the fundamentals of reading, writing, and grammar as a primary or secondary source for learning many of the content standards in language arts. This study guide provides practice activities to help students improve reading comprehension skills, increase vocabulary, develop essay organizational and writing skills, and improve spelling, grammar, and punctuation skills within the context of the novel. The format of the study guide is modeled after the types of questions commonly found on standardized tests. This format is stylized in a comparable layout and contains similar terminology used in state and national standardized tests so that students become familiar with the types of questions on which they will be tested, based on their grade-level standards. For each chapter in the novel, the Literature for Learning Standards-Based Study Guide provides practice pages for the following skills in language arts: vocabulary, reading, comprehension, grammar, spelling, punctuation, capitalization, essay organization, and writing. Teachers may use this study guide to assess students’ skills in each of these categories as a whole-group lesson, in small groups, as independent work assignments, assessments, and/or as homework assignments. Teachers may use the Literature for Learning Standards-Based Study Guide at a pace that is comfortable to the needs of each student or class. The Informational/Nonfiction Literature for Learning Standards-Based Study Guide is designed to provide background information to help frontload students on topics related to the novel in order to boost student understanding and engagement. The Informational/Nonfiction Text Study Guide includes passages and activities that provide practice answering text dependent questions based on the following Common Core standards: • Quote accurately from a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text. • Determine the main idea of a text and explain how they are supported by key details; summarize the text. • Determine the meaning of general academic and domain-specific words and phrases in a text relevant to a grade level topic or subject area. • Identify the overall structure (e.g., chronology, comparison, cause/effect, problem/solution) of events, ideas, concepts, or information of the text. • Demonstrate the ability to locate an answer to a question in the text. • Explain how an author uses reasons and evidence to support particular points in a text, identifying which reasons and evidence support which point(s). • Cite textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text. • Determine a central idea of a text and how it is conveyed through particular details; provide a summary of the text distinct from personal opinions or judgments. • Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative, connotative, and technical meanings. • Analyze how a particular sentence, paragraph, chapter, or section fits into the overall structure of a text and contributes to the development of the ideas. • Determine an author’s point of view or purpose in a text and explain how it is conveyed in the text.
