Leveled Literacy Resources!

Sarah Brouillier, Grade 1 Teacher at Mahan School, has just completed an extensive graduate project creating a database of leveled books using the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) text complexity criteria. With the help of Maureen Delucia and other Stanton staff, they spent the summer reading a wide variety of books and using the three components of text complexity - 1. Quantitative Measure, 3. Qualitative Analysis, and 3. Reader and Text Considerations - to determine appropriate text levels aligned with the DRA levels. They used a rubric based on Nancy Boyle's rubric and the one from the Council of Chief State School Officers. She also developed a short guide for each component of text complexity to explain the qualitative leveling process and its relationship to quantitative and read-task considerations.
