Here's a way to teach the same grade-level content to students with varying reading skills! The same information is written at three different levels: below grade level, at grade level, and above grade level. All the students in your class can read the passage and have the information they need to respond to the same six questions that evaluate their comprehension of the subject matter. The curriculum topics cover science, geography, history, and language arts. The reading passages are correlated to the Common Core State Standards, and the reading levels are calculated according to the Flesch-Kincaid Readability Formula.

I have 1st-4th grade level readers in my 3rd grade class. I bought the 3rd grade book thinking it could work for my kids on 2nd grade level, but the lower passages looked too difficult. So I bought the 2nd grade book. The lower passages were labelled 1.2-1.9, but they were definitely higher.

I will use this through the year. The topics are interesting and broad so a variety of readers will be engaged in the topics. Uses higher level thinking skills to acquire the correct answers.
