Oxford Literacy Guided Reading - Levels 12-17

Transitional Stage

Students reading Oxford Literacy texts from Levels 12-17 are described as reading at the "Transitional" stage of the Oxford Literacy reading program. Typically readers at this level are required to:

  • Infer meaning from pictures, photographs and a range of visual communicators
  • Read complex sentences and understand that a conjunction has been used to bind two phrases, with one being dependent on the other for meaning
  • Use organisational features in non-fiction texts to add information and gain greater meaning
  • Use punctuation to assist with fluency and phrasing, and comprehension of a range of texts
  • Reflect on story or information to help with meaning
  • Integrate all three cueing systems through questioning (e.g. "How did I work that word out?")
  • Cross-check meaning and other cues to confirm vocabulary
  • Demonstrate persistence and re-read if necessary
  • Use glossary and non-fiction text features, such as indexes and headings, to retrieve information
