I am about to transcribe for a 2nd grade student. I remember several years ago referring to a publication called "Promises and Practices", I think. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Is there another resource book that could help me in describing simple items such as coins, cubes, etc.? I appreciate any input. thanks, Rebecca
The Promising Practices document was discontinued a number of years ago and is no longer used. See Formats 1.5 and 1.6 for guidance with lower grade material. Also, the agency now plays a greater role in determining what is appropriate for lower grade readers with regard to volume size, page size, interpoint, and line spacing. Other provisions in Formats are the same.
