One challenge with Guided Reading is there are several different systems for “leveling” books. But this easy-to-use Leveling Correlation Chart shows the relationship between most common leveling systems (Fountas & Pinnell, DRA, Lexile, Reading Recovery, etc.), making comparisons quick and easy!
It's important to note that a key finding of the National Reading Panel (2000) was that “guided oral reading” is a very effective strategy, especially in the lower grades. While Guided Reading seems to have fallen into disfavor with some Science of Reading advocates, adding an oral (read aloud) component to this structured reading approach allows students to get immediate guidance and feedback from the teacher or other skilled readers. Research has shown that this combination of practice and feedback can greatly enhance reading fluency.
