An article written by Julie Ankrum (Department of Professional
Studies in Education) was recently published in the Early Childhood
Education Journal. “Complex
Texts or Leveled Readers for the Primary Grades? Yes and Yes!” describes
the current debate about the use of leveled readers during literacy instruction.
The article was written to shed light on both
sides of the debate, and to ultimately help teachers integrate diverse
instructional materials into their teaching repertoire.
