WESTMINSTER, Calif. - June 20, 2013 - PRLog -- Teachers and students are in for a treat when they use this new series of books from Teacher Created Resources! Students enjoy reading the fascinating stories (like the one where a farmer milks a herd of animals with fangs). Meanwhile, they are developing skills not only in comprehension and vocabulary, but also in critical thinking. Which of the "facts" in the stories are true, and which aren't facts at all? Students must find this information by using 21st century research tools—tools such as online dictionaries, encyclopedias, and atlases; temperature, currency, and metric converters; and image galleries.

A variety of questions follow each story—multiple choice, true/false, short
answer—requiring students to synthesize what they have researched and apply their knowledge to the test questions. Finally, students complete a writing exercise that challenges them to think critically about what they have read, form opinions using information they have
inferred or determined to be true or false, and combine logical reasoning with writing mechanics. Teachers enjoy the seamless integration of Common Core Standards. These lessons are actually fun!

Each 64-page book sells for $9.99. Educators and parents can visit www.teachercreated.com to find out more about these and other Teacher Created Resources products.
