When I began working with one of my students, he was reading 17 wpm with about 40% comprehension. With the Timed Readings program, he progressed to consistently reading 850 wpm with 80% comprehension and went on to college classes!

Timed Readings

Reading Levels 4-13, Interest Levels 6-12

Prepare your students for standardized tests in all subject areas by building reading rate, fluency, and comprehension

  • Increase reading stamina
  • Build reading rate and fluency
  • Develop comprehension and critical-thinking skills

Do you have students who simply do not finish the test in the time allotted? Do they move their eyes over the page without remembering what they read? For over 35 years, the Jamestown Timed Readings collection has helped such students increase their reading rate, fluency, and comprehension and improve their standardized test scores.

The 65 books in the series all have

  • Uniform 400-word passages for easy timing.
  • Nonfiction and fiction selections like those found on state and national tests.
  • Literal and critical comprehension questions.
  • Progress charts for motivation.
  • Identical covers within a series so no one is embarrassed.

Seven different series to meet your students’ needs

  • Timed Readings Plus in Social Studies, Science, or Mathematics— passages on content-area topics like those found on standardized tests
  • Timed Readings Plus in Literature — excerpts from great literature
  • Timed Readings — passages from science, social studies, the humanities, and more
  • Timed Readings Plus — nonfiction passages followed by related fiction
