Observation Survey: Assessing Through Close Observation for Grades 1 and 2 Teachers, and Learning Support Teachers

Description:

Designed for teachers to learn how to support students who are having difficulties in their early literacy learning. This is a strength-based, formative assessment tool.

Teachers will learn to administer all six literacy tasks listed below to get detailed knowledge about a child’s literacy processing that will inform instructional decisions:

  • Letter Identification
  • Word Reading Test (reading vocabulary)
  • Concepts About Print
  • Writing Vocabulary
  • Hearing and Recording Sounds in Words
  • Running Record of Text Reading

Teachers will work to develop shared understandings and common language when assessing students in need of support – leading to informed, responsive learning opportunities for striving early learners.

 

Kerry Dotto, Reading Recovery Teacher Leader, and Teresa Toth, Reading Recovery Teacher Leader will facilitate these sessions.
