Reading Recovery versus Informal Reading Instruction on the Reading Achievement of Preschoolers at the End of First Grade.
Jelks-Emmanuel, Merry
A study examined the effectiveness of a Reading Recovery program. Subjects, 14 first-grade students who received the Reading Recovery program and 20 first-grade students who did not receive the program, were administered the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills in the spring of 1994. The subject population was comprised of 100% minority students attending James Weldon Johnson Public School, which is located in a predominantly low socioeconomic neighborhood in Chicago's Lawndale community. Comparison of test scores indicated no statistically significant difference in reading achievement of the sample groups. Followup research is needed as the number of students increase going into the Reading Recovery program. (Contains 15 references and one table of data.) (RS)
