Help me give my students high lexile books that will get them to fall in love with reading challenging books!
How can we improve our students' comprehension across all contents? Get them to become voracious readers. Yet sadly most literary curriculum use books that are too difficult for many of my reading intervention students, so they fall farther behind each year. Ninety-nine percent of my students are first-gen Latino-Americans in a community where only 2% of the adult population holds a college degree. Students report having 0-3 books at home, and never having shopped for a book. Teach them to love reading.
In my class, students must read 250 pages per week. They can read anything they want so long as it is within their reading level (Lexile).
Help me find a book that's my Lexile!" Yes, my students ACTUALLY say this! They know that in order to grow they need to read books that are both challenging yet entertaining. My problem is that my library only has 2 books that are above 9th grade level. Hardly a library that will prepare them for college level texts.
So I've included some works by Bill Bryson for my kids that like non-fiction and I've included the first few book in the Lemony Snicket series (11th grade reading level!) that my students have been requesting because "it's got a show on Netflix!" DOH! Never judge a book by it's screen adaptation!
