Assessing Reading Behaviour
It is through observing and assessing children’s language and literacy that teachers can make plans for future literacy.
To help practise assessment exercises from Developing early literacy: Assessment and teaching, 3rd edn, videos of children reading in the classroom have been developed. Drawing on information in the book and online support materials, assess the five types of reading behaviours of the children in the videos:
- assessing phonemic awareness,
- assessing concepts of print,
- assessing phonics,
- assessing reading fluency, and
- how to take a record of reading behaviour.
