The most effective way to understand what a child knows about the reading process and can do independently is to take a running record. In Running Records, Mary Shea demonstrates how teachers can use running records to design lessons that ameliorate difficulties, build on strengths, and stimulate motivation, ensuring that children develop self-sustaining learning strategies.Special Features include: A step-by-step outline for taking efficient running records. Guidance in running record analysis: readers will learn how to use running record data to determine a child’s level of decoding skill, comprehension, fluency, and overall reading confidence. A companion website offering videos of the running record process, sample running records for analysis, and numerous other resources.In order to meet the multi-faceted needs of children in today’s classrooms, teachers need to be knowledgeable about literacy content. Running Records provides that invaluable knowledge, making it an ideal text for literacy courses for pre-service or in-service teachers.
