Have you ever wanted to find out what grade level an article or book was written at? Teachers who use trade books in their reading programs are often wanting to know this information. Intervention Central has a free tool you can use! It is the Reading Fluency Passage Generator.
I will be doing a face-to-face workshop at Utah State University this Thursday. I know most of you can’t attend the face-to-face workshop, so I’ve also put it online. It takes about an hour to go through.
Sincerely, Nathan Smith
