I would like to let you know just how useful the literacy profile has been. I have been using it so far for just a few students who are a particular high risk, but will be using it soon for the majority of my students. The few instances though I wanted to let you know about how the profile has come into use in two separate ways.
The first was to show a set of kindergarten parents that their son does have control of most of the skills for where he is in terms of school, and has as good starting foundation.
The second, I was able to use the profile as part of an IEP meeting, resulting in a 2nd grade student receiving special education services. Since kindergarten she has made minimal progress. The profile showed that she was in the right place for most areas, but 3 where she was much lower. As another piece of evidence besides the special education testing, this helped to show that Title 1 services were just not enough for this learner and she would be better assisted in a special education setting.
For each of these instances I filled out the profile according to all evidence I had, and then passed it along to the classroom teacher who provided additional information on the profile. All teachers I have shown the profile have had very positive feedback. Our principal and special education teacher in particular have had more than positive feedback.
At our workshop on Friday, we had to set our professional goals for the year. The Title 1 Para-professional and I decided that our Title 1 goal would be to use the ‘profile’ for those students who are at particularly high risk due to multiple factors.
I look forward to using your book and the profile in the upcoming year. Thank you for such an insightful resource.
