Hi there,

Normally, I will write out  the students leveled reader on my apex, or you could use a laptop with a refreshable braille display. Typically, the student will only be reading for a minute, so it isn't that much to type out. As the student is reading, I mark mistakes the student makes and then go back to score it. It's also a good idea to record the student doing this, so you can go back if the technology glitches or the student make several mistakes in a row. Feel free to reach out to me, since I recently graduated in the spring of 2017 with degrees in elementary education and special education. I teach third grade at our state school for the blind, but I have two students with a significant amount of vision.

Now we’re building on that and acutually creating lesson plans and completing other assignments that we will use our internship.

> 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.

> 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?
