    This was an interesting interview about the 4 ways to assess the reading process. Sometimes, however, we are limited to what our school provides and expects for us to use as a basis for evaluation of reading comprehension. I am in a school in a low income area that is very limited to resources. Sometimes we can only do our best with what we have, and even though we want to provide the best instruction, we can only do so much. As a first grade teacher,I have an assistant, but at times she is pulled for other uses and consistancy here is a great issue for me. Thanks patty sistrunk

    Students are being asked to complete tasks rather than focus on the way they think. We are creating a cookie-cutter society in which we want individuals to fit into a mold. Testing for standards has replaced real learning. I like the error detection tests in conjunction with total class questionnaires because it forces the students to analyze context and find words that do not belong in the reading. These techniques could be part of an assessment of reading without creating the anxiety that goes along with traditional testing techniques. it is more important to focus on the processes than the final result. How can you build a house on a shaky foundation?

    I found the 4 ways to access what students are thinking while reading and what strategies they are self-developing was extremely interesting. I have never really thought about WHAT the children were thinking and how it directly effects their comprehension. I focused on what they knew or what they learned and not HOW they were learning. I plan to use these strategies and will be interested in seeing the difference in success by focusing on what is going on in the child's head.
