The Main Idea workbook contains 35 passages followed by a set of questions requiring students to identify the main idea and supporting details. The Inferences and Conclusions workbook, which contains 20 passages, requires students to read closely and provide textual evidence to support inferences. The Vocabulary workbook provides instruction and activities in six areas: context clues, metaphors and similes, idioms, homophones, roots and affixes, and using the dictionary. The Fact and Opinion workbook contains 19 passages, each followed by a set of statements requiring students to discern between facts and opinions. The series' content is derived from the following themes: history, environment, nature and science, people, health, social issues, law, sport, and labour.
