- Each lesson comes with a completely different set of tier 2 vocabulary focus words.
- It also includes a completely separate word work focus.
- The questions for focusing on the comprehension skill in step 4 are different for the advanced level.
- The passage changes in each of the three levels, adding sentence complexity, multi-meaning words and figurative language, along with new vocabulary.
- If a group of students use the basic level and show success, the teacher can absolutely use the average level with that same group (since vocabulary, word work, and text complexity changes).
- They can even use the advanced level as well.
- They'd likely change the way in which the text was read in the group.
- For example, in the basic level the students may read silently after the introduction.
- In the average level they may choose to echo read.
- In the advanced level it may be teacher read.
- In fact, there is so much power in rereading and trying out new ideas and thinking each time.
I hope this explains how these lessons differ and there are indeed 6 lessons in this resource.
Are you unsure whether your students are really reading or simply trying to memorize words?
- The 2 passages (1 F, 1 NF) are specifically designed to answer this question!
- Begin with lesson 1 or 4 (the basic level). Have students read the passage after the introduction and complete the lesson.
- Use lesson 2 or 5 (the average level) with the same group. This may be the next day, week, or months later. Choose a reading format for step 2. This may be different than your first time reading.
- Because the tier 2 vocabulary and the complexity of the text changes, students will be forced to adjust their reading. Yes, the text is about 80% the same, but they will have to show that they can adapt to the changes when they reread the new version. There is POWER in rereading!
- When students are strong enough readers, try out lesson 3 or 6 (the advanced levels) with the group. It may be teacher-led reading, but the thinking after the new version of the text, the comprehension focus, and the new tier 2 vocabulary discussion will be even richer.
: Consider these bullet points above when trying out the adjusted passage from the basic, average, to advanced level with a group of readers!
I really hope that these digital reading groups will help you organize and maximize the time you have with your students!
