How to Use the Matrix
Imagine you're a 7th grader with a 3rd grade reading level...

1. Select the reader's interest level on the Y-axis
Begin with the "middle school" row

2. Select their reading level* on the X-axis
Find the 3rd grade reading level column

3. Identify the square where these two levels meet
Trace their intersection to the center square

4. Use the small arrows to peruse just right choices
