Overview

A classroom-based, child-centered assessment for tracking step-by-step progress in reading, writing, and spelling with reproducible assessment forms. Drawing on major new insights in brain research, Gentry shows how reading and writing develop in five phases—children progress from no knowledge of the alphabet to an understanding of phonics chunks—providing a blueprint for instruction. Once you understand a child's phase of development, you know exactly what kind of instruction they need to move forward. The assessment guide and DVD show you how to easily identify a child's phase of development, set reasonable expectations for growth, and select from the instructional techniques Gentry provides to best help every student become a successful reader and writer. For use with Grades PreK-2.
