The Results of a Cross-Disciplinary Approach to the Study of Successful Reading Practices.
Raivetz, Mark J.; Summers, Anita A.
This paper describes the data gathered as part of the School District of Philadelphia/Federal Reserve Bank Cooperative Study of Successful Practices in the Teaching of Reading. The data base includes information about 25 schools, 25 principals, 25 reading teachers, 94 classroom teachers, 68 reading aides, and 1,828 fourth-grade students. The information is organized into five "sectors": student/socioeconomic status, school characteristics, teacher characteristics, instructional support, and the reading program. Regression runs were formulated to include variables from each sector, to run against the difference between third-grade and fourth-grade scores on the California Achievement Test of Reading. Some preliminary results from the analyses are discussed at a general level. Appendixes provide a complete list of the variables in each sector and a glossary of reading approaches and programs represented in the study. (AA)
