Reading miscue inventory : alternative procedures by Yetta M Goodman( Book )

4 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Expanding on the original "Miscue Inventory," this book examines various miscue analysis procedures and discusses how they provide teachers with effective methods for understanding and measuring students' reading processes. The chapters are divided into three parts, focusing on miscue analysis and the reading process, miscue analysis procedures, and miscue analysis and curriculum development. Respectively, chapters discuss (1) the importance of miscue analysis for reading professionals, the historical development of miscue analysis procedures, a recommendation for self-monitoring the reading process, and a student whose oral reading is used as an example throughout the book; (2) the reading model developed by Kenneth Goodman; (3) the collection, organization, and marking of miscue analysis data; (4) questions used in miscue analysis; (5) an alternative procedure for miscue analysis; (6) three more alternative procedures including information on miscue selection for coding, question usage, scoring the retelling, forms for miscue coding and retelling, and calculation of statistical information; (7) three models of reading instruction and the essentials of a whole language reading program; and (8) how the information gained through miscue analysis might be used as the basis for a reading program. Appendixes include a summary of procedures, Gordon's miscue analysis, blank forms used in various procedures, and previous miscue analysis formats. (Jd)
Reading in the bilingual classroom : literacy and biliteracy by Kenneth S Goodman( Book )

10 editions published between 1978 and 1984 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The issues of reading in bilingual education are examined with a primary focus on the contemporary classroom in the United States. Within bilinqual education, concern for reading has seldom reflected current research and theory, and little research has focused on reading within bilingual programs. In addition to focusing on the specifics of the classroom, issues are discussed in the context of human language and language use now and in the past. The development of literacy in multilingual countries must be based on understanding of linguistic realities in specific locations and must be in tune with political, economic, and cultural realities. The range of possibilities in the school's responses to bilingual or multilingual realities and the kind of literacy program each alternative requires are presented. The series of alternatives focus on maintenance, transitional, and English as a second language programs. Three common assumptions that have dominated curricular suggestions in bilingual literacy programs are discussed, and the range of ways to attend to reading issues in schools with bilingual pupils are examined. Teaching methods, instructional materials, and program evaluation for reading instruction in a bilingual, biliterate curriculum are covered. A list of references and information sources for bilingual bicultural materials is included. (Sw)

Whose knowledge counts in government literacy policies? : why expertise matters by Kenneth S Goodman( Book )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Accountability, in the form of standardized test scores, is built into many government literacy policies, with severe consequences for schools and districts that fail to meet ever-increasing performance levels. The key question this book addresses is whose knowledge is considered in framing government literacy policies? The intent is to raise awareness of the degree to which expertise is being ignored on a worldwide level and pseudo-science is becoming the basis for literacy policies and laws. The authors, all leading researchers from the U.S., U.K., Scotland, France, and Germany, have a wide range of views but share in common a deep concern about the lack of respect for knowledge among policy makers. Each author comes to the common subject of this volume from the vantage point of his or her major interests, ranging from an exposition of what should be the best knowledge utilized in an aspect of literacy education policy, to how political decisions are impacting literacy policy, to laying out the history of events in their own country. Collectively they offer a critical analysis of the condition of literacy education past and present and suggest alternative courses of action for the future"--
