Description - Miscues Not Mistakes by M. Ruth Davenport

In this substantive, practical guide, Ruth Davenport presents essentially a miscue analysis workshop in a book. Davenport demonstrates that you can do miscue analysis every day with every student reading any book through the use of an "Over the Shoulder Procedure." You'll realize that changes in the text are miscues, not mistakes, which tell you much about the reader's use of language and processing of written text. Davenport thoroughly describes the reading process, then offers practical applications of her methods using reproducibles and examples. In addition, by visiting and linking to her book, she gives you a chance to hear an eight-year-old reading, mark the student's miscues on a typescript, and follow her evaluation. Miscues Not Mistakes gives you: - a deeper understanding of the reading process - charts and transcripts to help you try out miscue analysis - skill in the Over the Shoulder Procedure - fast, friendly, and relatively paper free - well developed "miscue ears" attuned to the language of miscues, not mistakes.
