  • Yes, teachers can choose a topic in Follett MyDestiny and find a variety of interest levels within that topic to enable differentiation.

    Publishers work with a variety of reading level programs, such as Lexile® or Fountas & Pinnell, for leveling their books – and filtering tools enable teachers and students to search for and identify texts at different interest levels so that content can be differentiated for every learner. It is important to consider not only the reading level but also the interest level and the background knowledge of a student when selecting the right text complexity for a particular student.

    The variety of interest levels also lends itself to the importance of read-alouds above reading level for building background knowledge orally, as well as guided reading for small group instruction and independent reading for practice.
