Overview

A Handbook for Literacy Instructional and Assessment Strategies is the ideal resource for current and future teachers seeking a flexible, step-by-step approach to research-based assessment instruction.

This easy-to-read handbook includes the most powerful instructional strategies organized around critical areas of literacy development, providing an invaluable resource for both pre-service and busy K-8 classroom teachers for literacy instruction.

Attending to the significance of monitoring students’ literacy development and providing documentation for reporting the results of their performances in an evidence-based education context where teachers must show that they “can teach so that students learn,”this handbook gives a prominent role to classroom assessment tools within each strategy. In addition to the step-by-step format, each instructional strategy is aligned to an assessment tool that faciliates the teachers’ assessing and documenting students’ progress using classroom performances that are part of the literacy program.

To simplify the use of the handbook, each strategy is organized in a similar way to include the following: (a) the instructional context, (b) the framework or background information, (c) the learner outcomes, (d) the instructional procedure, (e) an application of the instructional procedure, (f) the assessment procedure, and (g) professional readings and references.
