A “tiered reading” takes an excerpt of real literature, makes progressively easier versions of it, and lets students walk through from a gentle conversation introducing a few of the words, to a version in simple language, to a slightly more complex version, to the original itself. By the time they arrive at the original, they should be able to read it with enjoyment, as literature.
