As part of our school initiate, I've had the opportunity to both meet with literacy experts (reading clinicians, psychologists, resource teachers, experienced elementary teachers, and reading recovery teachers), and attend workshops facilitated by literacy gurus. Using the information I gathered about older struggling readers, I developed this differentiated reading unit last winter and implemented it into my second semester English classes. The result was very successful in my room, and I hope you will find the same success with this program. As I have only had the opportunity to teach this unit once, I will be continuing to tweak and improve it as I go through it again. Future updates will be free to those who purchase this unit.
Differentiated Reading Groups was developed for students in junior and senior high school, with extremely varying academic abilities. This unit is very adaptable for most grades. There are four reading levels included in this file.
I have included both a description of each level and sample pages from some of the student activities offered in the preview. I want to ensure that you are completely satisfied with your purchase, so please do not hesitate to send me a message if you have any questions.
