Israel will show you how to use metacognitive assessments to adapt literacy instruction to your elementary students' individual needs.This book supplies you with easy access to different types of metacognitive assessments - assessments that reveal students' own thinking about the reading process and their use of before-, during-, and after-reading strategies. In addition, you'll learn how to use the results of these assessments to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of your students' reading abilities and to more effectively create individualized reading instruction.The following special features will also aid in your understanding and successful administration of metacognitive assessments: classroom scenarios; goal-setting activities; appendixes of assessments and reproducibles; and suggested resources.
