Differentiated Instruction


Each High-Interest Book is available on two reading levels

By creating each of our titles on two reading levels, we are able to facilitate differentiated instruction in a classroom–reaching both your proficient and struggling readers with the same book. That’s right, the same book on two different reading levels! This allows students with varying reading proficiencies, but similar interests, to read the same book.
