I agree, we have to continue with what works. I like your approach. It would be great if we could expose students to the complex text in one class and provide an additional class where they can be met at their instructional levels. Scheduling and and shortage of teachers may prevent from happening in many schools. I am going to share your experience with our ELA department. Thanks for sharing.
