1Briefly describe six of the nine criteria a teacher considers when selecting a story.Age-Level Appropriateness: Teacher’s should consider if the material they are reading is age appropriate for the class. Will the children be engaged with what you are reading, can you use any props, songs, or dances with the material? Are the words in the story age appropriate for the children to understand, simple enough? Many publishers distinguish children's books by age and attach labels that include the ages their books are ideal for. Plot: Teacher’s should choose a story that will have one central plot; a secondary plot may confuse children. A few criteria a teacher may ask themselves are, does the plot of the story have a sequence of events, how does the story start, does it catch the children's attention with some surprise, does the story tell something about the characters, and/or how does the story end? The plot is probably the most essential ingredient in a book you can’t put down or one your child begs to have read over and over. Inbooks for younger children, a plot is easy to see and there is something different that happens on each page.
