Reading Recovery: Widening the Scope of Prevention for the Lowest Achieving Readers. Technical Report No. 580.
Gaffney, Janet S.
Noting that Reading Recovery is a short-term, supplementary reading and writing intervention for the lowest achieving first-grade children, this report describes Reading Recovery as a way of increasing the possibility of literacy success for all children. Distinctions that contribute to the success of Reading Recovery are highlighted in the report. The relationship between Reading Recovery and special education is discussed within the context of the Regular Education/Special Education Initiative. The implications for the reorganization of schools and for teacher education programs are presented in the report as a shared responsibility of educators and of teachers to be accountable for the effectiveness of interventions with children.
