In this practical and accessible book, you'll learn how to create equitable and meaningful assessments in your instruction through an inquiry-based approach. Ruday and Caprino reimagine what asset-based literacy assessments can be and what they look like in practice by understanding that effective, asset-based literacy assessments must center on students: they must incorporate students' unique perspectives, ideas, and experiences in meaningful and relevant ways. Instead of using assessments that focus on identifying what students don't know, the practices presented in this book provide authentic opportunities for students to use what they do know to demonstrate their knowledge of important literacy concepts. The book is organized into three easy-to-use parts that cover: Key concepts of asset-based assessment Specific ways that these practices can be put into action Putting it all together in your own education context. A great resource for busy teachers, this book features a guide for teachers to use during professional development book studies and ready-to-implement templates when applying the assessment practices described in the book. 2 Line drawings, black and white; 2 Illustrations, black and white
