Spanish Translated Books and Leveling
Raz-Plus English leveled books have been carefully written using stringent guidelines and the proprietary, best-in-class Leveling System to ensure accuracy and consistency.
Spanish translators closely review the English Leveling Criteria as part of the translations process, but some books might seem easier or more difficult in Spanish than their English level specifies.
Teachers can use the English levels on the Spanish books as a reference point, but should use their professional knowledge when determining which Spanish Translated Leveled Books are the best fit for individual students.
