Comments on Narratives

    I love the TNL and the TNL-2 along with the MISL. I just wanted to add the CUBED as another free option for baseline and progress monitoring for narrative ( It’s a collection of narratives that you can use for narrative retell rather than story generation. The CUBED also has phonological awareness probes which can be used to predict possible reading issues (I coordinate care a lot with my resource teacher).
