Reading Levels All Around
Sat Jun 6, 2015 11:51

I have also wondered about your question. The classroom I assist in right now, the teacher actually has split her class up in groups based on their reading levels so that way when she assigns groups, she can pick a student from each level to work in a group which allows everyone to have a say so. There are of course times where all the students on the same level have to work together most of the time, however how can we meet all there needs? When I was a kid, I don't remember everyone being on different levels and so forth, we were just always given class novels and had no choice but to finish them. In a classroom with different reading levels, I do believe it is somewhat chaotic. I may be wrong but, I don't believe that one teacher can handle 20-30 students who are all on different levels, have specific needs to be met, and be able to have assigned materials in the classroom to work on independently. I have seen my classroom teacher sit there in the library and have the kids bring up what books they want and she approves them based on the AR points and the reading level they are. I believe this is sad because then you are taking their right as a student to freely pick up a book and explore it. Yes, I know that if a kid picks up a book that is obviously to hard for them to understand than you must monitor that, but I hate how book picking decisions are based all around AR and what that child can read. I honestly feel that something should be done about that.
