Reading Ladders by Teri S. Lesense

Published by Heinemann Books
“The goal of reading ladders,” writes Teri Lesesne, “is to slowly move students from where they are to where we would like them to be.” With reading ladders you start with the authors, genres, or subjects your readers like then connect them to book after book—each a little more complex or challenging than the last. Teri not only shares ready-to-go ladders, but her suggestions will help you:

· select books to create your own reading ladders
· build a classroom library that supports every student’s needs
· use reading ladders to bolster content-area knowledge and build independence
· assess where students are at and how far they’ve climbed.
