Finally, with Differentiated Nonfiction Reading Grade 5, there’s a way to teach the same grade-level content to students with varying reading skills!

This book provides 3 passages related to a particular topic with easy-medium-hard. so you can use it in your classroom and still hold a whole group discussion, yet they are reading selections based on their reading level.
Something that is crucial as a Reading teacher is to be sure that students always feel safe and comfortable when learning. This will go further than any strategy ever will. As a Reading teacher, I quickly learned that most of my struggling readers had been given a complex by other teachers. I don’t think this was something that was intentional or was even something that those teachers were aware they had done. Having students receive assignments that others could clearly see were different, made them feel ashamed. Well, how do I teach them where they are (differentiate) and not give different assignments, you may be asking. This book is the answer! You can read more about my 5 Proven Reading Strategies in my article.
This book allows you to teach the same grade-level content to students with varying reading abilities while keeping the look of the assignment the same. Students cannot tell who was getting what reading level, or that they are different at all. The same information is written at three different levels: below grade level, at grade level, and above grade level. All the students are able to read the passage and have the information necessary to respond to the same six questions that evaluate their comprehension of the subject matter. This book was amazing!
Making my students feel comfortable and confident made them work twice as hard for me and themselves. This book does just that and is a must have in any Reading class.
