This third edition of Marie Clay’s highly-valued An Statement Survey of Early Literacy Achievement presents her familiar assessment tasks designed for systematic Statement of young children as they learn how to read and write. All the time respecting the creator’s intention, the editors have taken a fresh have a look at the best way the book’s message is communicated to teachers. Layout and expression have been refreshed to make sure clear understanding, and the administration and interpretation of each and every task within the survey have been carefully structured for consistent delivery.
The Statement procedures arose from a theory of how children learn how to manage the complex task of reading and writing continuous text. That process is described in Marie Clay’s books Becoming Literate: the Construction of Inner Control; Change Over Time in Children’s Literacy Development, and By Different Paths to Common Outcomes. The intervention described in Literacy Lessons Designed for Individuals makes use of these Statement procedures.
This book will continue to be an invaluable resource for early literacy assessment for a few years.
