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 the upper grades. 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." Five appendixes contain the reading and writing scales, a discussion of English language learning, a School Performance scale, the Learning Record (for secondary schools), and a discussion of student data collection. (Contains 46 figures, reproducible data collection forms, and 32 references.) (SLD)
