Running Records in two languages: Spanish and English

Running Records are an essential component of the formative assessment process for every classroom. With this series of workshops, teachers in Spanish-English dual language programs will learn how to apply running records as a formative assessment to guide instruction. Participants will practice administering running records in Spanish and English using student video recordings from real dual language program classrooms.
