Portland Reading Recovery Program 1989-90 Evaluation Report. Year 1.
This report on a study of the first year of implementation of the Portland Reading Recovery Program assesses the current status of the program in terms of program planning, teacher outcomes, student outcomes, and parent involvement. Following preliminary data about the 91 first graders and their teachers who were involved in the program, the report discusses findings that suggest that: (1) the program was successfully planned and implemented; (2) the participating teachers (11 teachers in 8 schools) successfully completed an intensive training program that included reading and writing theory and application; (3) the program increased students' reading achievements and concepts about themselves as readers; and (4) the administrators, classroom teachers, and parents supported the program. Data for this report (gathered through interviews, document analysis, test scores, survey questionnaires and observations) are presented in seven tables, two figures, and five appendixes. (KEH)
