Accessible Text Pieces Can…
Build Background Knowledge: so that readers can better connect what they know to new information.
Create Curiosity: so that readers wonder about the topic and are propelled to learn more about it.
Show Connections to the Real World: so that readers understand how required reading is important outside of school.
Serve as a Piece of Text for Modeling: so that readers can see options on “how” to think about their reading when it gets difficult.
