Series Name: Differentiated Classics: Adapted Classics at Two Low Levels
Theme: Hi-Lo, adapted classics, low level classics
Freedom is everything to Huckleberry Finn. How can he avoid being civilized by the good-hearted Widow Douglas? But just now, Huck has more important things on his mind; like helping his friend Jim escape the slavecatchers!
We've taken our Timeless Classics and Shakespeare and made them even more accessible. Words and phrases that may have stumped emergent readers have been eliminated. We recognize that students in the same classroom may not have equivalent reading skills, which is why the two levels appear virtually identica on the outside. Inside it's a whole different look, with a larger font and extra white space, making these stories visually appealing with the aim to improve reading comprehension, fluency, and confidence. Classic fiction is 80 pages and classic Shakespeare is 110 pages.
