ITRI Informational Text Reading Inventory: Grade 2 Teacher Manual
Indiana Department of Education
The Grade 2 Informational Text Reading Inventory (ITRI) was developed to help early primary students develop the skills necessary to read and use informational text. This booklet contains all the information teachers need to use the Grade 2 ITRI materials, including assessments, mock textbook pages, mini books designed to look like commercial trade books, and support materials. Because all ITRI content comes from Indiana's Academic Standards for Grade 2 science, social studies, and English/language arts, ITRI materials will enhance the subject matter teachers already teach. Students will always learn the reading skills within the context of their content area curriculum. Appended are: (1) Chart of Academic Standards Addressed Across the Curriculum; (2) Grade 2 Text Features; (3) Text Feature Scavenger Hunt; (4) Observational Checklist and Comprehension Questions; (5) Sample Observational Checklist; (6) Culminating Textbook Assessment; and (7) Informational Text Reference Books.
