RMA was first a research tool. Now it is a teaching tool. Using Retrospective Miscue Analysis, readers of all ages learn to become proficient readers of text. RMA helps them participate in conversations about the reading process and helps them develop skills as readers and writers.

Information collected through miscue analysis leads to meaningful discussions between teacher and student and among students, with or without the teacher. As stated in the Preface, "RMA has the power to bring back joy in teaching and engagement in learning. Enough to revive good teaching; enough to nourish a learner."

Review:

In this era of standardized testing that takes reading assessment out of the hands of teachers and students, The Essential RMA is a breath of fresh air. It treats teachers as knowledgeable professionals who are in the best position to assess the reading of their own students through face-to-face interactions. It assumes that students are capable learners who can participate in the assessment process and develop insights into their own reading processes. As a result of using Retrospective Miscue Analysis, students discover their own strengths as readers, build their confidence, and learn how to utilize effective strategies to build proficiency. This easy to follow guide equips teachers with the tools they need to bring authentic reading assessment back into their classrooms and plan individualized instruction for every student. --Bess Altwerger, Towson University

This is a brilliant little book, with the potential to change the way teachers at all levels and subject areas understand, support, and guide their students' reading development. The authors skill in presenting complex concepts in clear, teacher-friendly , accessible language will ensure that those who study this book will be able to design and implement new, powerful classroom strategies that support and promote effective reading behaviour. I believe that Retrospective Miscue Analysis has the potential to unleash a new, more effective paradigm of Guided Reading . Those who buy this little book will be at the forefront of this paradigm change. --Brian Cambourne, University of Wollongong
