Flesch Kincaid Grade Level Indicator activity

Flesch Kincaid Grade Level Indicator activity
Product Description
This activity explores how grade levels are assigned to reading passages. The formula used is the Flesch Kincaid model.

Three passages are examined. One is a Dr. Seuss passage that ends up being for students not even in first grade (a negative number is the answer).

The next passage is a more complicated passage, broken down into easy-to-read syllables and sentences. Students obtain an answer about 12: beyond high school.

A third passage asks students if the passage, found on the Internet as a 4th grade reading excerpt, actually is classified correctly (it is).

Answer pages are included. Also, there is a link provided to download the complete Smart Book presentation for this activity.
