Most of my students read two to three grade levels behind the sixth grade level. Thus, we set big goals together, striving for two years of reading growth in one academic year. This requires much careful assessment and diagnosis on my part, and it is oftentimes hard to demonstrate to the kids how much they have progressed. This year, I hope to obtain a digital voice recorder to help me better assess my students' individual reading strengths and areas of concern. With sixty students, having the luxury of recording their reading (and downloading it onto my computer) allows me more time to carefully analyze and diagnose their needs outside of the short period that I have them in my classroom. This means that I can assess more students in a shorter period of time and can intervene sooner. In addition, I envision recording students several times throughout the year and allowing them to hear themselves to compare their readings and to more clearly mark their progress! Improvements in reading can be slow and difficult for the reader to realize. Being able to actually listen to their own improvements in reading would serve as a major motivator and provide my students with a very real benchmark of their accomplishments. Please help us record and hear our successes this year as my students become better readers!
