Instructional Intervention That Works: Case Study Research.
Walker, Barbara J.; And Others
The reading clinic at Eastern Montana College uses preservice elementary and special education teachers to provide remedial tutoring to elementary reading disabled students. The program is centered on the motivating force of success with emphasis on the academic task of reading. Tutors adapt instruction to strengths and weaknesses of students. A wide variety of techniques are used to remediate oral accuracy and oral reading fluency, sight word vocabulary, and comprehensions and study skills. Case study evaluation of students (5-9 years old) attending the clinic was summarized to identify particular methods that appeared to effect reading growth in comprehension, readng rate, decoding strategies, word recognition, oral reading fluency, and use of syntax to predict meaning. Intervention strategies were characterized by extensive student-teacher interaction. Approaches that resulted in the highest overall gain scores required student self-evaluation and monitoring. (CL)
