Reporting Pupil Progress in Reading.
One means of reporting learner achievement in reading is to utilize parent-teacher conferences. Adequate skills in word recognition is one facet of reading achievement that might be reported. Important word recognition techniques include: using phonics to unlock new words, syllabication, and utilizing context clues, configuration clues, picture clues, and structural analysis. Pupils also need to comprehend what has been read. Reading comprehension skills that might be evaluated with parents of the involved pupil include: comprehension of important facts; generalization; reading to follow directions; reading to acquire a sequence of ideas; critical reading; and understanding the purpose of the writer. In parent-teacher conferences, adequate time needs to be given to discussing pupil progress in reading for a variety of purposes to comprehend content. (RS)
