Systemic Effects of the South Carolina Reading Recovery Program: Part I.
Delicio, Gail C.; And Others
The first in a series of studies, requested by the Reading Recovery Advisory Council of South Carolina, an exploratory study identified and measured the systemic effects of Reading Recovery on the districts, schools, programs, teachers, and students in South Carolina who are touched by it. Subjects, 701 first-grade teachers, second-grade teachers, administrators, Reading Recovery teachers, Reading Recovery teacher leaders, and Reading Recovery teachers in training, completed a questionnaire. Results support the assertion that changes in the literacy level of children who participate in Reading Recovery influence not only the child and the teacher, but provide a positive school-wide impact by inspiring the development of new instructional goals, enhancing the professional development of all teachers, reducing the need for special education, and improving overall school achievement in a cost-effective manner. In addition, the Reading Recovery program produced positive teacher change because it was a school-based model in which teachers learn while they were teaching children and interacting with peers and mentors who were also working in the program.
