Literacy Profiles: A Framework to Guide Assessment, Instructional Strategies and Intervention, K-4

Literacy Profiles: A Framework to Guide Assessment, Instructional Strategies and Intervention, K-4 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Too often teachers are asked to simply report whether or not students are at grade level in reading or writing, based on single or narrow measures.  Profiles, on the other hand, offer a wider lens, permitting the teacher to notice and record students’ development across different dimensions of literacy.”  

Sue Biggam and Kathleen Itterly

 

 

Designed to serve teachers as a classroom handbook, Literacy Profiles: A Framework for Assessing, Recording and Developing Students’ Literacy Progress, K-4 serves as a practical tool to help you identify and evaluate the literacy strengths and weaknesses of each student in your classroom.  The framework for the literacy profiles identifies ten critical areas of literacy learning and allows teachers to record the incremental steps individual students make as they become competent and confident readers and writers. Chapter content provides guidance for sharpening your instructional skills and scaffolding instruction based on both summative and formative assessment data. Literacy Profiles provides a valuable progress monitoring tool to tailor literacy learning to individual needs based on purposeful and appropriate assessment information.

 

What will you find valuable in Literacy Profiles?

  • A comprehensive framework that outlines ten strands of literacy development and incremental learning goals for children in grades K-4.
  • Assessment tools that measure not only what students can do but what can they “almost do” to better link assessment with instruction. 
  • Teaching and learning guidance tied to Cambourne’s conditions of learning and social/interactive engagement based on Vgotsky’s zone of proximal development.   
  • Artifacts and assessment data collected from Willa, an actual second grade student,   offers authentic methodology for using the literacy profile with children.

 

 

What do reviewers say?

 

“I’m impressed with the authors’ efforts to include background, assessment and instruction in one text. This is (a) major undertaking and one the field definitely needs.”

Diane Bottomley — Ball State University

 

“The author has chosen great strategies and concepts to introduce to the reader.”

Stephanie Grote — Texas A&M Corpus Christi


Book News Annotation:

Biggam (education, U. of Vermont) and Itterly (education, Westfield State College) have created this assessment guide for teachers who must evaluate the literacy skills of children from kindergarten to the fourth grade, noting how current school administrations are not getting enough information about student proficiencies from current guidelines. The authors have developed ten "strands" of literacy development and incremental learning goals based upon new learning theories such as Cambourne's Conditions of Learning and Social Engagement and Vgotsky's Zone of Proximal Development. A section of this book contains data gathered by a second grade student using these concepts, showing the effectiveness and simplicity of these assessment tools.

Synopsis:

Literacy Profiles: A Framework for Assessing, Recording and Developing Students’ Literacy Progress, K-4 is a diagnostic handbook for identifying each student’s literacy strengths and weaknesses. The Literacy Profiles framework names ten critical areas of literacy learning, describes the specific skills related to each of these strands, and correlates their development to the early, middle and late stages of grade level progress.  Each of these strands is then covered in chapters that lead teachers to examine and improve on their own instructional practice.  This book and the framework it presents will serve teachers as a valuable progress monitoring tool to not only assess and record  students’ literacy progress but also impact students’ literacy learning specific to individual needs.
