This book is designed so that classroom teachers can quickly ascertain whether or not the students within the class are ready to begin a new reading skill or if they need to continue practicing a reading skill they have not mastered.
There are 10 story sets and 100 formative assessments. Each story set is composed of a story and 10 formative assessments that include the following: main idea, supporting details, inferences, cause and effect, comparison and contrast, chronological order, author’s purpose and perspective, word analysis, context clues, and synonyms and antonyms. There are nonfiction and fiction reading passages included in this package.
Formative reading assessments can be the difference between success and failure for students. Teachers who have successful track records in teaching reading often point to formative reading assessments as being the key to their students’ successes. Why are formative reading assessments so valuable? Formative assessments allow teachers to reflect on what has been taught, what has been learned, and whether to move forward
with instruction or reteach the lessons. Formative reading assessments can answer the following questions: Have the students mastered the reading skill? Should the reading
skill be retaught? What are the students’ weakest reading skills? What are the students’ strongest reading skills? Who needs to have the reading skill retaught?
Great for the beginning of the year and a great back to school resource that you will use year after year. Questions are designed to support critical thinking skills and the common core standards.
