The Practical Guide to Classroom Literacy Assessment, is every teacher's indispensable guide to assessment of all aspects of elementary literacy. It is an engaging and comprehensive resource for practitioners and pre-service teachers that integrates assessment and instruction activities to demonstrate practical ways for embedding test preparation into teaching and learning. Authentic teaching situations and dialogues in a story-like setting help readers become part of the background as observers, then use the structures and similar activities in their own teaching. The authors present specific assessment formats with how-to and when-to guidelines for reading, writing, and speaking--illustrated with rich examples, dialogues, scenarios, checklists, and student samples. An essential teacher's resource for linking literacy instruction and assessment more closely, evaluating grading, and providing meaningful instruction while conforming to current testing mandates, this is also an invaluable reference for coaches and administrators.
