Barr, Mary A.; Craig, Dana A.; Fisette, Dolores; Syverson, Margaret A.
The Learning Record is a framework teachers can use to translate their observations of students into a disciplined, systematic, standards-based reporting process. This guide offers all the information necessary to use the Learning Record in elementary school. The chapters are: (1) "Documenting Prior Experience"; (2) "Documenting Student Learning"; (3) "Reflecting on the Year's Work"; (4) "Classroom Organization and Management"; and (5) "Professional Development." Four appendixes contain the reading and writing scales, a discussion of English language learning, a School Performance scale, and the Learning Record (elementary). (Contains 55 figures, reproducible data collection forms, and 35 references.) (SLD)
