Differentiated Non-Fiction Reading


ISBN – 9781742397238


by Debra Housel

This book assists with differentiated instruction by offering the same information written at three different reading levels: easy (below year level), average (at year level) and challenging (above year level). Reading levels are calculated according to the Flesch-Kincaid Readability Formula, which counts the number of words, syllables and sentences to determine a text’’s readability. Students can read the passages at their reading level and respond to questions that evaluate their comprehension of the subject matter. Questions cover six vital comprehension skills: Locating facts; Understanding vocabulary in context; Identifying conditions; Making inferences; and Analysing and Visualising. The book also provides instruction for teaching how to approach multiple choice questions.
