Eighth Grade Title I Parent Workshop

Come learn about the Lexile Reading Framework and how it effects your child's education.

October 25th from 5:00 to 6:00 in the Turner County Middle School Media Center

 The Lexile Framework® for Reading is an educational tool that matches students with reading materials using a common measure called a Lexile®. The Lexile Framework is unique in that it measures reading ability and text difficulty on the same developmental scale. When used together, Lexile reader measures and Lexile text measures help parents to select books, articles, and other materials that match their child’s readingability. Targeting reading material at the child’s Lexile level can help to improve his or her comprehension, aid in completing school assignments, and build upon and expand his or her personal interests.

What should you know about Lexile measures?
· A Lexile measure represents both a child’s reading ability and the difficulty of a text, like a book or magazine article.
· Lexile measures provide you with valuable information about your child’s reading ability and helps to make reading practice more meaningful.
· Using the Lexile Book Database and an automated library media catalog, you can help your child choose books and other materials within his or her Lexile  range (about 50L above and 100L below his or her Lexile measure).
· When your child reads text within his or her Lexile range, he or she is likely to comprehend enough of the text to make sense of it, while still being sufficiently challenged to maintain interest and learning.
· While Lexile measures target the difficulty of a text, they do not measure the appropriateness of the content. For example, a text with a low Lexile measure may not contain appropriate material for the students within that text’s range.
· Lexile measures do not translate specifically to grade levels. Within a classroom, there will be a range of readers and a range of materials to be read.

· Lexile measures track reading growth over time and across content areas, no matter what grade your child is in.
