Oral Reading Observation System Observer's Training Manual.
Brady, Mary Ella; And Others
A self-instructional program for use by teachers of the handicapped, this training manual was developed to teach accurate coding with the Oral Reading Observation System (OROS)an observation system designed to code teacher-pupil verbal interaction during oral reading instruction. The body of the manual is organized to correspond to the nine categories of OROS: target pupil-exact oral reading; target pupil-miscues; look, sound, and meaning teacher prompts; pupil answers to prompts; teacher feedback and management; teacher telling; and nonoral reading or other behaviors not related to oral reading. Each section contains definitions; examples of behavior representing each code; special coding rules, exceptions, and special technical procedures; and exercises for gauging trainee progress. Five appendixes contain definitions of all OROS categories, keys for all exercises, general coding techniques, dialect features, and phonics rules and generalizations. The manual is intended for use only by those who have studied the OROS "User's Manual" or have been trained by someone familiar with the "User's Manual." (FL)
