Reading Instructional Level

Reading Instructional Level

The instructional reading level is the highest level at which a reader is not independent, but has adequate background knowledge of a topic, and can access text quickly with no or few errors.

Think of the highest level you would ask a child to read with only a small amount of help or support. The vast majority of the text that a child reads during the school day should not exceed this level.

In How to Read A Book, Van Doren and Mortimer talked about 4 main levels of reading: elementary reading, inspectional reading, analytical reading, and syntopical reading
