Louisiana Literacy Profile for Grades K-3. Teacher's Guide [and] Manual [and] Pupil Record Sheet.
Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge.
The Louisiana Literacy Profile has three parts: Teacher's Guide, the Manual, and the Pupil Record Sheet. The teacher's guide for the Louisiana Literacy Profile for Grades K-3 presents the background of the profile, identifies the purpose of the profile, outlines the components of the profile and gives a rationale for each of the components. The teacher's guide also provides directions for using the profile, stating that a teacher may use the profile as a means of observing and recording an individual student's performance over time to inform instruction. The manual outlines the following concepts assessed: oral language development, receptive language, ability to understand language; book and print awareness; phonemic awareness; graphophonemic knowledge; analysis of oral reading and response to text; written language A: writing for communication, the ability to communicate meaning through written forms of language; and written language B: mechanics of writing. For assessment of each concept at the suggested grade level, the manual provides the teacher with guiding questions for observation and a relevant activity for the student to undertake. The record sheet recommends that the teacher monitor the student's progress throughout the year. Teachers are to record individual student progress in the boxes next to the literacy behavior and date each observation. (NKA)
