Research on an Easy Reading Level
EBSCO Primary Search and Middle Search both allow you to choose the Lexile reading level before you search so that ESL students or slower readers can find articles on an appropriate level. The Advanced Search on SIRS also allows you to choose the general reading level before you search for articles.
