Hall, John; And Others
Offering guidance on diagnostic and developmental techniques illustrated by examples from the classroom, this teacher's guide helps teachers to assess pupils' understanding and day-to-day progress in reading and to identify appropriate next steps to help pupils make progress. Topics explored in the teacher's guide include pupils' attitude and motivation to read, their ability to decode and pursue meaning, and their awareness of an author's use of language. The six examples in the teacher's guide illustrate the range of ways teachers can incorporate a structured diagnostic approach into their classroom teaching. (RS)
