Text Complexity: "The place to begin with is the student’s reading level.”

Text Complexity: "The place to begin with is the student’s reading level.” | Common Core Highlights | Scoop.it

In the past I myself embraced what Fountas and Pinnel called “a balanced literacy approach.”  Under this model classroom reading would be made up of the following components:

independent reading (at the student’s independent reading level)guided reading of a whole-group text (at median instructional reading level for class)teacher read aloud (slightly above median instructional level). 

 

The common core call for increased text complexity seems to fit well with the “guided reading” portion of the block.
