Step into your students’ shoes…

Pa XXXX Joanie with his dirty XXXX. Spoon rose to follow Pa, but one of the XXXX XXXX in the window caught the light of the real XXXX and sent off pure white XXXX directly at Spoon. He sat down again, XXXX by the XXXX orb, feeling as if he was on the brink of a meaningful XXXX, on the verge of XXXX his XXXX.

His eyes darted from one XXXX to the next. Something of Gram’s.

Thinking, thinking.

  • 4th grade reading level
  • 85% accuracy

Tom Marshall, 2010

slide15

Let’s try that again at 90%...

Pa followed Joanie with his dirty XXXX. Spoon rose to follow Pa, but one of the XXXX suns in the window caught the light of the real XXXX and sent off pure white XXXX directly at Spoon. He sat down again, XXXX by the XXXX orb, feeling as if he was on the brink of a meaningful thought, on the verge of XXXX his XXXX.

His eyes darted from one XXXX to the next. Something of Gram’s.

Thinking, thinking.

  • A little better…
  • Still not “just right.”

Tom Marshall, 2010

slide16

How about 95%...

Pa followed Joanie with his dirty dishes. Spoon rose to follow Pa, but one of the XXXX suns in the window caught the light of the real XXXX and sent off pure white flashes directly at Spoon. He sat down again, mesmerized by the XXXX orb, feeling as if he was on the brink of a meaningful thought, on the verge of solving his XXXX.

His eyes darted from one sun to the next. Something of Gram’s.

Thinking, thinking.

  • Starting to clear up…
  • Let’s see 100%

Tom Marshall, 2010

slide17

This is what it should sound (and feel) like…

Pa followed Joanie with his dirty dishes. Spoon rose to follow Pa, but one of the stained-glass suns in the window caught the light of the real sun and sent off pure white flashes directly at Spoon. He sat down again, mesmerized by the gleaming orb, feeling as if he was on the brink of a meaningful thought, on the verge of solving his problem.

His eyes darted from one sun to the next. Something of Gram’s.

Thinking, thinking.

  • So, what does that show?

Tom Marshall, 2010

slide18

It shows us…

  • Under 96% is really unclear.
  • It’s crucial that as teachers and parents we work to match children to books on their LEVEL.
  • Better to be too easy than too hard.

Tom Marshall, 2010
