Help me give my students high-interest/low-readability novels that we can read together in class.
I teach a junior-high school intensive reading course which is designed to remediate students who are not currently reading and writing on grade-level. The majority of my students are reluctant readers who have trouble finding fiction that they can relate to.
I love to introduce my students to the joys of reading by selecting high-interest “teenage-themed” novels that are written at a lower Lexile (reading level).
I have had a lot of success while using the Bluford High School series of novels with my students throughout the years. Perhaps I have had a little too much success- because several of my novel copies have been irreparably damaged and need to be replaced.
Thank you for helping me on my mission to encourage the love of reading amongst my students!
Several of my students claim that they hate reading. They do not hate reading- they simply hate reading “boring” books.
We use the Bluford High School novel series in intensive reading classes because it features a cast of relatable, multicultural students who struggle with complex topics relevant to the lives of today’s teenagers: family, friendship, trust, isolation, social media, and peer pressure.
The Bluford High School novels feature both male and female characters and include elements from many literary genres. As a whole class- we read and discuss our class novel four times a week during our 10 minute reading block.
