This popular resource distinguishes itself by placing literacy assessment within the context of mainstream classroom reading instruction. Using developmental reading stages as a framework, LITERACY ASSESSMENT puts teachers' instructional needs at its core and considers assessment as a natural part of the instructional cycle. The authors' mission is to show that, with appropriate instruction, success in literacy development is achievable for every student. By presenting the right balance of concept and demonstration, along with a dynamic, positive outlook on learning in both children and teachers, this book equips teachers to help children reach their potential.
