Developing an Early Intervention Reading Program for the Primary Grades of a Public School.
A practicum analyzed possible alternatives to identify the most successful reading intervention strategies before a child's development and learning is seriously or permanently impaired. K-3 students were identified for an early intervention reading program in a public school setting, through the Students Study Team, which was expanded to include specialists, parents, and categorically funded staff, so that students could receive reading intervention long before they had failed sufficiently to require placement in special education. Students read to, and were read to, by teachers and participated in cooperative learning groups for about seven weeks. Although the program took place at the end of the year, staff, parents, and children felt the program was successful and merited expansion from K-3 to K-12 for the following year.
