About this title


Elementary and intermediate grade teachers will welcome this valuable tool for matching texts to their students' abilities - a process called "leveling." This how-to book can help you make informed choices about which leveling system is appropriate in your classrooms, which books can be used in instruction, and how to successfully implement the challenging task of leveling. Author Weaver explains the importance of leveling, describes its impact on new instructional techniques, and provides a step-by-step procedure for leveling in grades K-6. You'll have an opportunity to review the many different leveling systems that are available today - including the author's own - so that you can select the best system for your classroom. In the end, you will know how to customize your literature-based programs to fit the specific needs of your students.

From the Back Cover:

In recent years, as elementary teachers have shifted from the use of basal readers to literature or trade books, the task of how to match books to students' reading levels-a process often referred to as book leveling-has become a common concern. Leveling Books K-6: Matching Readers to Text will assist teachers in making informed choices about which leveling system is appropriate, which books can be used in instruction, and how the text level of books should be matched to the reading abilities of students in the primary and intermediate grades.

Author Brenda Weaver discusses the need for leveling books and the dynamics involved in this process. She explains the terminology involved in book leveling and takes readers through each step of the process. Weaver discusses her own leveling system, the Weaver Reading/Writing Stages, and compares it to other leveling systems using the criteria of instructional focus, assessment, teacher accessibility, disadvantages, and advantages. Finally, the author outlines a plan of action for beginning the challenging task of leveling books. Leveling Books K-6 will help both classroom teachers and administrators find ways to customize their literature-based programs to fit the specific needs of their students.
