Multiple Reading Levels

Our mission is to let all students have access to real scientific research. This can be a challenge when your classroom contains a range of abilities. That’s why we have articles available in multiple reading-levels.

These adaptations allow students to focus on the core scientific concepts with level-appropriate vocabulary. This allows more students to access real scientific research!

We’ve made differentiated instruction easy for you to implement. Simply provide each student with the version that best suits their abilities. At the end of the class, they will have all received essentially the same information but at their comfort level.

Take a look at this side-by-side comparison of one article with adaptations for lower (left) and upper (right) student reading levels:

You can find all available reading level adaptations on an individual article’s page, as in the sample article page below:

That’s Not All!

SJK offers audio and video formats to increase access to real scientific research. These formats narrate an article in its available reading level format. Check them out below:
