All TextWord literature series feature curriculum aids that add power to every lesson.

  • Each selection in each anthology contains a Before You Read page that supplies a short biography of the author and provides a brief literary overview.
  • Strategically-placed Sidebars, positioned throughout the texts, reinforce comprehension, stimulate thought processes, and help students zero in on significant concepts.
  • Checkquizzes follow each selection and are designed to ensure that the basic text has been understood and remembered.
  • Literary Critique questions follow each selection and sharpen critical and analytical thinking skills, helping students to develop balanced opinions and arrive at sound judgments.
  • Thought-provoking Writing Workshops and sensitivity-raising Reader-Response Journals provide students with invaluable assistance in all areas of written communication, including literary analysis. A wide variety of writing tasks expands students’ skills and helps them relate literary experiences to life.
  • Helpful Definition segments at the foot of relevant pages help students understand archaic or infrequently-used words, and unusual word usage.
  • Vocabulary Workshop exercises build vocabulary skills through in-context study of new and difficult words in the texts. All words used in the Vocabulary Workshops are listed in the Glossary together with their definitions, syllabifications, and diacritical marks.
  • Handbooks at the close of each anthology serve as important language-arts supplements. The handbooks provide additional important information and offer applications and exercises in the areas of grammar, vocabulary, writing skills, and the use of literary terms. They round out a comprehensive literature/language arts curriculum.
  • Our own Regents Review Handbooks, created exclusively by the editors at TextWord Press, offer students additional opportunities to prepare for the New York State Regents Examination or for any other national proficiency examination. Each anthology contains two new, complete sample Regents examinations. These sample examinations provide an excellent practice format.
  • Novels, dramas, novellas, novels, and short stories in all our series are enhanced and supplemented by For Your Information, A Closer Look and Historical Highlights entries that add immeasurably to students’ background knowledge.
  • Teacher's Notes and Motivational Material guide presentation of the selections and provide a springboard for classroom discussion.
