Brady, Mary Ella; And Others
The training manual provides self-instructional materials for the Oral Reading Observation System (OROS) designed to teach accurate coding of teacher/pupil verbal interactions during oral reading instruction. The nine sections focus on specific aspects of the OROS system, include self-evaluation exercises, and have the following titles: (1) "Target Pupil-Exact Oral Reading", (2) "Target Pupil-Miscue", (3) "Look Teacher Prompts" (the teacher tries to help the child with the miscue without actually telling him what the word is), (4) "Sound Teacher Prompts", (5) "Meaning Teacher Prompts", (6) "Pupil Answer to Prompts", (7) "Teacher Feedback and Management", (8) "Teacher Telling" (the teacher gives the child the text word), and (9) "Non-Oral Reading/Other" (teacher or pupil behaviors not related to reading).
