How Do You Use the Leveled Books Database?


Quick Answer

Use the leveled books database by searching for books based on title, author or reading level. Searching the database returns a list of books with information about each book's title, author and reading level for Guided Reading, Reading Recovery and Accelerated Reader programs.

Guided Reading is a teaching program using which instructors teach books to small groups of students. Guided Reading sessions teach students basic reading skills and strengthen their ability to discuss material found in the books being studied. Guided Reading uses an A-to-Z leveling system for titles, with the simplest books rated at A-level, while the most challenging get Z ratings.

Reading Recovery is an intensive, short-term program designed to improve reading skills rapidly in those students with the lowest reading ability. This program uses a numerical leveling system with books increasing in difficulty from levels 1 to 29.

Accelerated Reader is a proprietary software product that uses interactive testing to gauge a student's comprehension of a book. Each Accelerated Reader title has both a reading level and a point value. A student earns points by taking a reading comprehension quiz once he has finished a book. Accelerated Reader levels increase from 0.1 to 6.0 with decimal increments.
