In part 3 of our series, we give a brief overview of the different organizational patterns of reading passages and paragraphs commonly found on the COMPASS. We also discuss the role of signal words and ideas in giving shape to those patterns. Two very helpful signal word websites: http://lincs.ed.gov/readingprofiles/Signal_Words.pdf and http://www.somers.k12.ny.us/intranet/reading/signalwords.html. The sample questions in this video can be found at: http://www.act.org/compass/sample/pdf/reading.pdf.
