This book is a fantastic resource aligning closely with much of the new Ontario Language Curriculum and reinforcing how assessment can inform our instruction and interventions in order to best help students succeed in literacy. It’s valuable learning for classroom educators, those working in coaching/consulting roles and those in special education. While targeting skills typically developing in the primary/junior divisions, the information and ideas could be helpful for older students who are struggling in literacy as well. A great title for a staff or divisional book study.
Chapters in this book support multiple areas of the new Ontario Language Curriculum throughout many grades (Strand B: Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Fluency, Vocabulary; Strand C: Reading Comprehension) The book is focused on using screening and other assessments to inform intervention.
