Overview

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.

Do not purchase this book from B&N! I needed this book for my grad class. When my professor asked us to pull out the 11x17 literacy charts, I found they were not in my book. After chatting with a B&N representative, he provided me with a link for their Textbook Rental policy which states that charts and other supplementary materials are not guaranteed. Apparently this policy applies to purchases in addition to rentals. Unfortunately, this book is now useless for my use both in grad school and in my classroom. I will be extremely wary of purchasing any textbooks from B&N in the future.
