Hi-Lo is a term used to describe high-interest, low-reading-level students. It can be difficult to find books for these students because you need to find appealing stories, at their reading level, with characters and a plot that falls at their age level (not too babyish).
Typically, the upper limit of Hi-Lo reading materials is 4th or 5th grade, at which point resources taper off dramatically, so we’ve taken books that fit into the “high interest-low level” role (but aren’t actually ‘hi-lo’ books), and are using them to slowly expand the reading level while teaching history, geography, and science through an engaging story that holds their interest.
These FREE Hi-Lo units begin with a book, include some background / introductory material, and have hands-on activities, video clips, critical thinking questions, and writing activities included.
