A Case Study of the Implementation of Reading Recovery with a First Grade Student.
Caravati, Nancy
A case study assessed the effectiveness of Reading Recovery as a reading intervention program for students in the first grade. The subject was a 6-year-old boy in the first grade who was experiencing difficulty in learning to read. The student was selected to receive tutoring based on his scores on informal reading assessments as well as on his teacher's observations of him in the classroom. The subject received instruction 2 days a week for 12 weeks. Each lesson was based on the Reading Recovery model and lasted approximately half an hour. At the end of the intervention period, the subject was retested and showed improvement in alphabet knowledge, word identification, phonological awareness, and word recognition. The student also demonstrated growth in independent reading. (Twenty references, a graph of data, and pre- and post-intervention summaries of scores for tutoring assessment, writing samples, and reading strategies are appended.) (RS)
