Strategies for Building Comprehension and Reading Fluency

Use the Unit 6 reading and videos to help you develop your brochure. You can use the Assignment template provided for your brochure or create your own. If you are using the template, be sure to replace any text in red with your own work.

Be sure to format your brochure to include the following key points:
