Does anyone know where to find a key or legend that will explain the letter codes of the GRL? I have printed out book labels for my library and they indicate a GRL and I'd like to explain it to my students. I have looked through everything
GRL stands for Guided Reading Level. Try this link: http://tea

"Fountas & Pinnell (2001) describe guided reading as small-group instruction in which the teacher selects a text at an appropriate level, introduces the text, and provides purposeful teaching that supports the students’ understanding of the text."
So in other words, it is a scaffolding approach in which the teacher is providing a lot of support initially with the individualized reading of novels. This is where the Read 180 audio books really come in handy. It allows students to work with books above their independent reading levels. In college, I was taught that this is the student's "instructional" level as opposed to their "independent" level which would be some points below or their "frustration" level which would be some points above the "GRL" or "Instructional" level.
