Literacy develops in five recognizable phases, progressing predictably from one stage to the next, but many assessment systems arent sensitive enough to recognize which phase a child has reached, nor sophisticated enough to offer ideas on how to move ahead. So Gentry created a kit to demonstrate an efficient, easy, and accurate way to see students literacy development with new eyes and unrivaled clarity. His method works, and the information it gives you will support a differentiated vision of every students progress toward literacy.
