Guiding Readers by Interest, Not Level

Reading is a highly complex activity. Readers must build strategies and create behaviors as they move to increasingly difficult texts. How can schools support this process and teach self-sufficiency as readers progress? View On Demand

How can us working in school libraries enlighten our school district with the actual intent of F&P leveling? It seems like the F&P Text Level Gradient is being misused.

I just listened/watched this webcast. Is there something I can download or print to prove I registered and attended this? I need to keep track of my hours of professional development for my school corporation. Thank you.
