Overview

Following the child to reading independence requires thoughtful planning and consideration as Montessori teachers enter the new school year. Drawing from her work on classroom-based assessment in Montessori schools, Linda will provide an overview of developmental benchmarks in reading and specific ways that Montessori teachers can learn about children in relation to those benchmarks in the first 6 weeks of school. Using this information, you will be better prepared to ensure that your classroom environments and activities support each child’s growth as a reader.

Learner Outcomes

  • Understand the continuum of literacy development for on track and off track readers.
  • Will be able to match children they teach to the continuum of literacy development.
  • Will have a set of classroom based assessment tools to ensure that they can match children to their place on the continuum.
