I teach in a self contained fourth grade classroom at Dodge Academy, which is a Chicago Pubic teacher training lab school affiliated with the Academy for Urban School Leadership. In my fourth grade classroom, the key to reading success for my students is a broad range of rich literature to broaden my classroom library. Particularly, my students need guided reading booksets in many different levels because their individual reading levels are so diverse. I must provide literature at my students' instructional level to help them become better readers. Considering that most children in my school have difficulty reading and comprehending nonfiction texts, I am requesting a broad range of nonfiction guided book sets for literacy instruction.
