      Hi Rebecca- Are you in a state that has adopted the Common Core standards because the standards outline the essential elements of reading, for both literature and informational text. They have standards from K-12 and you can access them at I find that following the standards focuses on the most important aspects of text and increases critical reading skills, so it's a win, win!

      Good luck!
