Miscue analysis may be the single best tool for assessing readers' difficulties. With Reading Conversations, you can take this tool to a new level, moving beyond diagnosis and into developmental strategies that involve not only teacher-student explorations of how students make meaning with texts, but also peer-led discussions. In retrospective miscue analysis (RMA) you work directly with students, engaging them in conversations about their reading miscues. RMA sessions achieve three important goals: helping you understand what readers are thinking as they read making readers more aware of their actions and thoughts during reading investing your students in the process of improving their own reading by building on their strengths. Then as your readers better understand their own strengths and weaknesses, they can take on increasing responsibility by discussing their processes with peers through collaborative retrospective miscue analysis (CRMA). Grounded in scientific research, Reading Conversations includes chapters on using RMA and CRMA at the elementary, middle, and high-school levels, reproducible self- and teacher-assessment forms, and testimonials and vignettes from teachers who have successfully adopted RMA and CRMA in their classrooms. Put the strategies in Reading Conversations into practice, implement RMA in your reading instruction, and get to know students' abilities better than ever before. Then use CRMA to further invest students in their learning and watch as your struggling readers develop the skills and confidence they need to enjoy a lifetime of reading.

She and her colleague Victoria N. Seeger have worked continuously together since 2001 on research including professional development schools, classroom research for teachers, and RMA, from which they have coauthored several articles. In addition to Reading Conversations: RMA with Struggling Readers Grades 4-12 (2005), coauthored with Carol Gilles, Moore has written Classroom Research for Teachers: A Practical Guide (2004) and has published over 30 articles in peer-reviewed journals on topics related to literacy education and the preparation of preservice teachers.nbsp; Moore nbsp;holds a master's degree in reading from Southwest Missouri University and a PhD in literacy education from the University of Missouri-Columbia.
