Literacy Profiles: A Framework for Assessing, Recording and Developing Students’ Literacy Progress, K-4 is a diagnostic handbook for identifying each student’s literacy strengths and weaknesses. The Literacy Profiles framework names ten critical areas of literacy learning, describes the specific skills related to each of these strands, and correlates their development to the early, middle and late stages of grade level progress. Each of these strands is then covered in chapters that lead teachers to examine and improve on their own instructional practice. This book and the framework it presents will serve teachers as a valuable progress monitoring tool to not only assess and record students’ literacy progress but also impact students’ literacy learning specific to individual needs.

“Too often teachers are asked to simply report whether or not students are at grade level in reading or writing, based on single or narrow measures. Profiles, on the other hand, offer a wider lens, permitting the teacher to notice and record students’ development across different dimensions of literacy.”
Sue Biggam and Kathleen Itterly
