As educators, you want to be sure that the resources you purchase correspond to a student’s educational level. Since our customers live across North America, it is impossible to find a consistent educational level.

Grass Roots Press uses the Fry Readability Formula to determine the difficulty of text. This formula determines the grade level of text by examining syllable count and sentence length.

For our American customers, we have referenced the Fry readability levels to the National Reporting System (NRS) Levels.

The Breadwinner Trilogy

Deborah Ellis

Readability: Grades 5–6

The Breadwinner tells the story of Parvana, a young girl, and her family as they struggle to survive under the Taliban in Afghanistan. Parvana’s father supports his family as a letter reader and writer in the market until he is arrested. His crime? He was educated in a foreign country. After her mother becomes ill, Parvana must transform herself into a boy and become the family breadwinner. The Breadwinner is a novel about loyalty, survival, families, and friendship under extraordinary circumstances.

Parvana’s Journey, the gripping sequel to The Breadwinner, tells the story of Parvana’s quest to find her family. In her search for shelter and food across the desolate Afghan countryside, she encounters other children who are strays from the war. At times extremely sad, Parvana’s Journey provides an honest and compassionate look at the situation in Afghanistan, yet never loses sight of the courage and hope that can keep children afloat in even the most horrific circumstances.

Mud City is the final book in the acclaimed trilogy. Shauzia, Parvana’s friend, has fled from Afghanistan to a refugee camp in Pakistan. Shauzia dreams of escaping the camp and travelling to France. She manages to leave the camp, but she has no money or food. Shauzia, however, is determined to find a new future for herself. Each book is accompanied by a reproducible novel study containing comprehension questions, reader response assignments, crossword puzzles, and more.

Teaching Beginning Readers Dr. Pat Campbell New This manual begins with a compelling story about Clarence,

This manual begins with a compelling story about Clarence, a man who learned to read at the age of 93. The next section presents a list of ten principles for teaching beginning readers. This is followed by responses to three frequently asked questions:

(1) Where do I start? (2) Do I need to teach skills in a particular order? and (3) What do I teach? The manual’s primary focus is the description of 20 instructional strategies and activities such as language experience, echo reading, and word families. Many strategies are geared towards educators who work in a one-to-one tutoring situation; however, each strategy can be modified for classroom instruction. The manual concludes with sample lesson plans, a resource list, and glossary. Please note that the strategies and lesson plans can be photocopied. (74 pp.)

For the past decade, customers have asked us to publish a series of reading workbooks with Canadian content. We are pleased to launch The Active Reader series, a Canadian alternative to the Voyager Series. The Active Reader series is based on the premise that fluent readers actively engage with the text, using a variety of strategies. Each workbook provides ten carefully levelled reading passages relating to five popular themes:

people, relationships, health and safety, environment, and history. Each unit aims to engage learners in the process of active reading by providing:

• pre-reading discussion questions that encourage students to connect the passage to their lives

• a non-fiction passage with strategically placed “stop and think” questions

• post-reading questions that promote reflection, critical reading, and discussion

• a mini-lesson that provides explicit instruction to reinforce a key comprehension strategy

• activities that develop word attack, vocabulary, and dictionary skills

• an authentic literacy practice that focuses on how people use literacy in their day-to-day lives

Workbook 1 will be available in September 2011.

Each workbook contains an answer key.
