&n>Many students find themselves struggling to learn from texts because glitches in their reading process block learning, cause frustration, and impede success. The source of these problems can be difficult to discern. Where’s the Glitch? identifies why readers stumble and presents strategies designed to get them back on track and reading well.

 

In Where’s the Glitch? Mary Shea shows you how to use modified running records (MRRs) to pinpoint where readers struggle with comprehension, to determine their current reading level, and to assess the specific skills they already possess. Shea explains how to take an MRR and get meaningful assessment data on the spot—even in a busy classroom. Then, she describes how to use that information to plan interventions that integrate instruction in literacy skills with content—area studies. As a result, students increase their reading fluency, overall achievement, and motivation to learn.
