Literacy assessment and intervention for k 6 classrooms
Literacy Assessment & Intervention for Classroom Teachers by Beverly A. DeVries
Literacy Assessment and Intervention for K-6 Classrooms / Edition 2
Planning and assessment practices are essential ingredients of challenging, comprehensive, intentional teaching. Assessment is an essential part of teaching and learning. It comes in many forms. There are informal and formal methods. Assessments occur before, during and at the end of teaching and learning. Assessment should be a natural element of any educator's practice. It makes sense to ascertain interests, skills, relevance and progress before we teach, as we are teaching, and after the teaching is done.

Collaborative Literacy is a rigorous, yearlong curriculum for students in grades K—6 that addresses the core reading, writing, and speaking and listening skills that students need while fostering their growth as caring, collaborative, and principled people. They develop a genuine interest in and love of reading, and they are motivated to write purposefully with a real audience in mind. They are part of a classroom community where students feel empowered, are supported in taking risks, and are responsible to themselves and the group. The modules can also be used individually to supplement existing literacy instruction. Collaborative Literacy provides an instructional cycle that includes teacher-led, whole-class reading and writing instruction; differentiated small-group reading instruction; guided practice; and opportunities for students to independently practice and apply skills and strategies.
