Literacy Portfolios : Improving Assessment, Teaching and Learning
For undergraduate and graduate reading/literacy courses in Early Childhood, as Childhood and Young Adolescent Education, Special Education, Language Arts, and Assessment.The second edition of this text concentrates on the process of creating literacy portfolios as a means to monitor and assess students' progress as readers and writers. The authors advocate using portfolios to complement information obtained from standardized testing and other performance-based evaluation tools; and, to help teachers better understand their students and learn what works and what doesn't to improve instruction. Hands-on coverage explores portfolio use in primary, intermediate, and secondary classrooms to document accountability, show authentic student progress and performance, enhance literacy development, and meet the needs of diverse learners.
