Reading and Writing Grade by Grade

Revised Edition


Lauren B. Resnick and Sally Hampton

Note to Mac users: This DVD does not run on the newest Mac OSX Lion and Mountain Lion operating systems (OSX10.7+) because the Rosetta software needed to view it is no longer supported by Apple. The DVD can be viewed on PCs and Macs up to OSX10.6. If you are on Mac OSX10.6 (Snow Leopard) and Rosetta isn't already installed, you will be prompted to install Rosetta upon launching the DVD. Clicking "Install" downloads and installs Rosetta from Apple's servers so you can view the video.

An indispensable tool for analyzing literacy skills and setting specific targets for learning for your kindergartners through third graders. You’ll discover what abilities and understandings K–3 students can be expected to have about the print–sound code, comprehension, reading and writing habits, written genres, and language use and conventions.

Along with thoughtful commentary and suggestions for instruction, the book and companion DVD include dozens of examples of children's writing, samples of oral reading, and videos of children discussing books and following written directions. Drawn from real classrooms, these work samples show just what makes for competent performance in kindergarten through third grade.
