I mentioned previously that I was impressed with an independent reading assessment that I saw at the Scholastic conference this week. I think it’s an avenue worth exploring on a limited basis. I’m looking for a team of teachers (2) in each grade level from 3rd to 6th who would be willing to pilot the program. Here’s what I propose:
1. We will purchase one kit per grade levels 3rd through 6th (to be shared with two teachers)
2. You will assess your students in 4th quarter using this assessment, and will not need to do Results or DRA.
3. You will have one full day of pull out with your partner teacher to discuss implementation, results, plan next steps, etc.
4. You will provide a summary of your findings to your grade level team at a grade level meeting.
Please respond below if you are interested in working with a partner at your grade level implementing these Independent Reading Assessments.
