Narrative intervention, using the Story Grammar Marker® approach, simultaneously targets discourse, sentence level language construction and expansion (syntax and morphology) as well as vocabulary concerns! This simultaneous targeting serves to clarify and facilitate documentation. With the goal of improved language and communication skills, Narrative Assessment is one of the biggest bangs for your buck for tracking and documenting student progress.
In the current “Document! Document! Document!” environment, our tools are uniquely designed to support this documentation process.
