I teach in Guilford County Schools located in North Carolina. I am a second grade teacher at Alderman Elementary School. My students' reading abilities range from non-readers (with a very limited vocabulary) to independent readers who are comfortable with chapter books. I have six ESOL students (students learning English or using English as a second language), and eight students who are performing below second grade level. Presently, I have a limited classroom library (since this is my second year as a teacher in this particular school). However, this library is building to include books varying in reading level and subject. At this time, I am in need of assessment tools for my students. I am required to evaluate reading ability on a quarterly basis. Our school is using a small set of running record books purchased by our school system. Some of these sets are incomplete making it necessary to share and borrow among teachers. The subject material of the books in this kit is sometimes difficult for the children to understand. They are unable to relate and make personal connections to the story events. Making personal connections and identifying with story characters and events are an integral literary component in improving students' comprehension skills. I would like to purchase a Developmental Reading Analysis (DRA) Kit for my second grade classroom. DRA emphasizes setting instuctional goals specific to each child. The texts in this kit are appropriate to measure the instructional goals and objectives set forth by our school system. After using this kit I would be able to recognize and adjust instruction based on developmentally appropriate reading levels. Within a full year of using this kit, I would expect to see improvement in my students' reading level as a result of being better able to adjust instruction to specific needs.
