Good day educators,

I’m in my last field placement (internship) before I start student teaching in the fall.

This semester we’re learning how to actually teaching reading, math, science and social studies to kids.  We took classes on this before, ut it was just theory sort of work. Now we’re building on that and acutually creating lesson plans and completing other assignments that we will use our internship.

My professors met with me and our access center at the university to discuss any questions they had for assignments throughout the semester.

. I say all of that to say that that’s where I’m cmingg from if I bombard you with questions this semester.

The question for today is  in regards to running records.

From what my prof described, running records are Teachers will sit down with a student and read with that student a book that that student happens to be reading. It’s a “read on the fly” sort of thing for it to be authentic.  The teacher will then make notes on that student’s reading.  I don’t know much more than that.

The prof is willing to make accommodations to complete the assignment if any are needed, but she also wants to make sure I get as authentic of an experience as I cfor the classroom.

I’m not sure which grade level I’ll be working with, but can you tell me how you have done running records with sighted students? Are there any accommodations that need to be made, that I. Would also be allowed to make in my classroom? Is it easy to immediately pull of the book that the student is reading?  What things should I do beforehand to prepare?

Thanks for any feedback you could provide.
