Don't think poorly of me, but I have yet to do a running record on any of my students. I guess I didn't realize I was supposed to be doing them until I was in a training on Tuesday. We did IRIs at the beginning of the school year, which we received no training on how to do them - just the bare bones (i.e. have students read the sight words to determine what passage they read, then as they read the passage time them for 1 minute to determine fluency. Do a wpm count, then ask them comprehension questions related to the passage). I feel like such a horrible teacher, but honestly I've been given no training on how to do anything. I feel like every time I think I am "getting it" I am thrown another into another downward spiral. Running records look awfully complicated. Furthermore, the training I went to delved into meaning miscues, semantic (I think??) miscues, and visual miscues. I guess my question is: How do I find the time to administer a running record? I do not have an aide and the only time I would be able to do anything like this would be during literacy workstations, but that would mean giving up small groups in order to do RRs. HELP!
