Abstract

This internship reports findings on the use of informal assessment in language arts, specifically in a special education setting in the primary grades of one school. Assessment and interventions were carried out on an individual, small group and whole class level. Students' use of metacognitive strategies, especially self-talk, in order to guide students' reading and writing were examined and encouraged. Students showed some improvement in this strategy use, displayed through anecdotal records of self-talk, over the 12 week period of the internship.
