Jennifer Serravallo's The Reading Strategies Book is out now. In today's video post, Jen describes how strategies in the book are tagged with a span of reading levels, and how teachers can work through a progression to more complex texts.
If you're working with students to infer about characters, a lower level text will feature character traits or changes different from a higher level text. Jen's strategies cover a range of levels for teachers to adapt to and mentor students reaching increasingly complex texts.
