Freshman English workbook supplement

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a workbook for a student I tutor who is entering Freshman Honors English.   I'm not worried about it being "Honors" but I want to work on reading comprehension - short, hard passages and then comprehension questions and/or short answers.

Anyone know of a workbook like this?

Thanks, Laura

I don't know about workbooks, but you could look at these sites:

readworks.org  is general passages at a variety of grade levels with questions

newsela.com for current events

sciencenewsforstudents.org for science (look for the feature articles that have accompanying before, during, and after reading questions)

Maybe something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Critical-Reader-Fourth-Complete-Reading/dp/173358952X/ref=mp_s_a_1_5?dchild=1&keywords=meltzer+act+reading+books&qid=1595838753&sr=8-5

Other than test prep books, I can’t think of a reading comprehension workbook written at the high school level. The Reading Detective series from the Critical Thinking Company would be my pick for middle school age/level, but even their B2 book would be below honors 9th grade level, I’m afraid.
