9780205360154: Case Studies in Preparation for the California Reading Competency Test (2nd Edition)

This concise, case-based text helps pre-service and practicing teachers prepare for the challenging California Reading Initiative Competency Assessment (RICA). Drs. Rossi and Schipper cover all domains, concepts, strategies and assessments required by RICA. The cases cover a wide variety of student profiles and grade levels reflecting California's school population, and include a variety of scenarios for whole classes, groups, and individual students.However the usefulness of this text goes beyond RICA preparation. It's a terrific companion to any literacy methods text for teacher preparation courses at undergraduate and graduate levels. The real-life scenarios reflect the literacy learning situations teachers encounter in actual classrooms and help teachers place their knowledge of reading methods and strategies into realistic contexts. All cases reflect research-based concepts and strategies covered in all major reading methods and diagnosis texts used in colleges and universities throughout the state of California.

From the Back Cover:

Pre-service and practicing teachers get practical help for preparing for the challenging California Reading Initiative Competency Assessment (RICA®) in a unique case study approach that covers all domains, concepts, strategies, and assessment required by RICA®.

 

This is the ideal resource for pre-service teachers who want practice in synthesizing and analyzing assessment and strategies for reading in the K—8 classroom, for credential candidates who need to prepare to succeed in taking the Reading Instruction Competence Assessment (RICA®), and for in-service teachers who want to enhance their assessment and instruction, while increasing students’ learning.

 

Model narratives appear throughout to help RICA® candidates become familiar with the format used on the RICA®, and the authors include assessments for a variety of groups of students, such as English language learners, struggling readers, and those with special needs.
