s Richard Gentry understands what every teacher knows about early literacy assessment: that to be useful, an assessment instrument must reveal more than how well a student is reading or writing - it's got to show what instructional direction the results indicate. Literacy develops in five recognizable phases, progressing predictably from one stage to the next, but many assessment systems aren't sensitive enough to recognize which phase a child has reached, nor sophisticated enough to offer ideas on how to move ahead. So Gentry created a kit to demonstrate an efficient, easy, and accurate way to see students' literacy development with new eyes and unrivaled clarity. His method works, and the information it gives you will support a differentiated vision of every student's progress toward literacy. s Assessing Early Literacy with Richard Gentryis a three-part, DVD-based kit that shows you how one simple diagnostic test can reveal any student's progress through the phases of early reading and writing. You'll watch firsthand as Gentry meets children between ages three and seven for the first time and uses his famed Monster Test to uncover which literacy phase they have reached and point toward the next steps each child should take. Paralleling the Instructional Blueprint in his best-selling Breaking the Code, Gentry's powerful assessment tool will give you invaluable insight into children's thinking as they discover the pattern of meaning behind the marks on a page and you track the natural, ordered, step-by-step sequence of operations that all beginning readers and writers employ. s Assessing Early Literacy with Richard Gentry's three components together offer an individualized professional development experience that will quickly have you assessing students successfully: The DVDlets you watch up close as Gentry meets and assesses seven students of varying ages and literacy levels. You'll see the powerful five-to-ten-minute sessions he spends with each child, allowing you to work alongside him and make your own evaluations. In the final segment, Gentry reveals the students' phases of development, and shares exactly how he arrived at them, and describes what they mean for each child's future instruction. The Phase Finderis a field guide to the five phases of early literacy development. It helps you recognize a child's phase and plan for subsequent teaching with advice designed to propel students through their current phase and into the next. You'll refer to this valuable resource while assessing the students on the DVD or the students in your own classroom. A Viewer's Guide to Assessing Early Literacy with Richard Gentryoffers suggestions for getting started, recommendations for making the most of the DVD and the Phase Finder, and tips on what to look for as you watch the DVD or assess the readers and writers in your classroom. s Let Richard Gentry lead you into a new way of looking at assessment. Use Assessing Early Literacy with Richard Gentry, find out how one little test can bring you closer than ever to pinpointing what phase of development your young readers and writers have reached, and do it all without the hassle of complicated, big-box assessment schemes. s
