Assessing Early Literacy with Richard Gentry
Five Phases, One Simple Test

Author(s) : Richard Gentry
Price :$38.75
Richard Gentry understands what every teacher knows about early literacy assessment: that to be useful, an assessment instrument must reveal more than how well a student is reading or writing - it's got to show what instructional direction the results indicate. Literacy develops in five recognizable phases, progressing predictably from one stage to the next, but many assessment systems aren't sensitive enough to recognize which phase a child has reached, nor sophisticated enough to offer ideas on how to move ahead.
