Upon examination of the 8th grade scores on the 2002 North Dakota State Assessment it appears that students need more practice reading a variety of materials, writing for specific audiences and editing to improve readability. Both state and local scores indicate these areas of performance are lower than other areas on the test. This unit gives students instruction and practice in these skills.
