Parents and Children Reading and Reflecting Together: The Possibilities of Family Retrospective Miscue Analysis
Kabuto, Bobbie
Reading Teacher, v63 n3 p212-221 Nov 2009
The possibilities of using Retrospective Miscue Analysis (RMA) with families to help parents and children investigate the reading process, are discussed with the goal of assisting parents to better understand their children's reading strengths. Highlighting a case study from a Family RMA project, this article illustrates how Family RMA provided a space for parents to identify with their children as readers, which allowed parents to better support their children in reading. Consequently, parents became strategic partners as their children evolved into strategic readers. Finally, this article concludes with the implications of this Family RMA study for reading specialists and classroom teachers. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
