Chapter 19 - Nagle Presentation

This chapter explores assessment for literacy and learning in secondary school settings. It provides examples of evidence-based assessment practices."The goal of secondary literacy assessment is to provide teachers with knowledge about how best to improve and support learning for students and self-knowledge for students that will allow them to become more reflective, active, and purposeful readers and learners" (348-349).

"In fact, most of us never stop learning to read better" (350)."Teaching students to use specialized literacy strategies to expand learning in the disciplines has been advocated for nearly a hundred years" (350)."...certain groups of students are privelaged in academic settings because the discourse at home and at school are congruent...a particularly heavy burden [is placed] on youth who are recent immigrants and those who may be in poverty" (350)."Adolescents who struggle with school-related reading tasks may participate extensively in out-of-school literate activities for personally meaninful, identity affirming, and socially functional purposes" (351).
