Description

The value of assessment is in its usefulness to the teacher and the student, not as an isolated mental activity. If we don't use the information we generate about our students to inform our instruction, we are simply "navel-gazing." Frank Serafini

Classroom Reading Assessments returns assessment to its simple, crucial essence: knowing students-really knowing them-so that your teaching addresses their individual strengths and needs.



Frank Serafini helps you open windows into students' invisible mental processes as they select books, read and make sense of them, and respond to them. He gives you his best of the best-classroom-proven, research-based assessments for before, during, and after reading that meet four stringent requirements:

They improve your students' reading They increase your effectiveness by pinpointing where students need help They maximize efficiency by avoiding unnecessary instructional interruptions They make sharing what you learn about students-with parents, other teachers, and instructional leaders-simple, direct, and useful.

At heineman.com, Frank even provides his most helpful customizable reproducible forms for assessment.
