I teach 4th grade and have changed over to giving my students choice in what is in their book boxes and what literature circle they are a part of. Sometimes my students pick a literature circle book that is a little more challenging for them, but because it was their choice and is a book they are interested in they do well in comprehending the book. I had a boy a couple years ago that was not a big reader and had struggled in the past. One Literature Circle he was a part of was a hard read for him but because of his background knowledge for the content of that book, he comprehended the book better then anyone else in his group. Because he had choice in his reading and I never said "I think that book is too hard for you", he loved reading by the end of the school year. Two years later I saw his dad and was told that the boy had made the honor roll.
