Characteristics of Text
This level has a great variety of genres including autobiographies, historical narratives, realistic fiction, science fiction, and other fantasy stories.
Some chapter books are quite long and require reading over an extended time. (Judgment is needed as to whether students can sustain interest for these longer selections.)
Selections contain many sophisticated, multisyllabic words: readers will need to consider both their literal and connotative meanings.
Knowledge of political and historical events as well as problems of different cultures and racial groups are required.
