Students will learn about and practice the reading comprehension strategy of evaluating with this short video and two interactives from Into the Book.

In the video, Mrs. Pingel realizes they are ready for a new strategy while students are doing research for a science project. She introduces evaluating using examples from students' own lives and class book reviews. Malaika begins evaluating her space resources, and is drawn into a NASA web site, where she has to use the strategy to get out of a space emergency in her own rocket ship. She also manages to use the strategy to get a new dog from the Humane Society.

In the first interactive — Space Race — students learn to critically evaluate websites while racing to build and launch a rocket during this activity. To build each stage of their rocket, they must choose which website would be the most useful source for a particular research task. The program guides students to apply specific criteria to the task, evaluating for appropriate information, reliability, and currency.

In the second interactive — Journey to Magla — students voyage to the star system Magla. They have four books in their spaceship, which they use to help them evaluate the three planets in the star system and decide on which to land for each part of their mission. They must also evaluate the books based on their usefulness for each task.

Into the Book is a reading comprehension multimedia resource. Students learn to use reading comprehension strategies including: prior knowledge, making connections, questioning, visualizing, inferring, summarizing, evaluating and synthesizing. This resource includes educational videos, online activities, professional learning videos and teacher tools. Discover more at reading.ecb.org.
