Places of Harlem is just one of the many fun and engaging reading sections we offer here at Harlem Roots. Within these virtual reading lessons, students will learn about neighborhoods, Historic Districts, Landmarks, Parks, and Theaters in Harlem. There are so many interesting, memorable, and influential locations in and around the Harlem area and sadly many of these landmarks and locations go unaddressed and untaught in our schools today. We knew this had to change and so we developed the Places of Harlem reading and activity pages.
Our online reading comprehension lessons are available on four different levels from K – 12 grades. Each lesson is common core aligned and is written from a diverse and multicultural approach and perspective. These Reading Comprehension Passages are designed to be used as an e-learning activity and can be completed by the student in the comfort of their own home. Each progressive level, starting at Kindergarten and going up through 12th grade, covers more information at a deeper level for a wonderful age-appropriate virtual study unit. The questions for the Guided Reading Levels are designed to help students learn how to carefully and thoroughly read passages and not just remember what they read but to help them process it and respond to it in a clear and concise manner.
