Summary Ruth Davenport presents 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.
Subject Miscue analysis.
