					Union 98 Reserved Titles List – Draft 3 – March, 2005
To Union 98’s Teachers – an overview of the Reserved Titles document The Reserved Titles list serves three related purposes. 1. First, we hope to ensure that teachers in one grade avoid the use of literature that is “Core” or central to another grade’s curriculum. To that end, we seek to standardize as few titles as possible for the benefit of our students. One common source of this problem in the past has been the middle school – high school transition. We wish to avoid situations in which a group of English students in a class have already read the core title in their middle level classrooms. 2. Second, we seek to identify books that are commonly used at each grade level so that teachers throughout the Union may know what others are reading. This may be of particular value to our new-hire teachers. 3. Third, it is our goal that at each K – 8 elementary school teachers coordinate their own Reserved Titles” list so as to avoid overlap within each building. On using the Lexile level as a reference: As a useful tool in determining age-appropriateness of all literature. The ELA Committee recommends www.lexile.com, which provides a quick search capability for most book titles. Lexile scores may also be determined for a sample segment of text typed in at this website. Further, for those of our grades who utilize NWEA, students’ scores are cross-referenced to a Lexile level, which can guide you and them to appropriate title selection for independent reading. One caution: readability levels and Lexile scores do not provide any guidance on the maturity / emotional content of a given text. Why some cells may be empty: If a cell is empty, this indicates only that teachers may have interpreted the uses of this list differently. Teachers, especially in primary grades, do not all feel it is necessary to “reserve” or hold titles for their grades. ELA hopes eventually to provide lists of titles from at least some schools in every grade for informational purposes. Such lists may be helpful to new hires.
