Family Links Report, Morse Street School, Freeport, Maine.
Rhoads, Kyle
A study examined the effectiveness of a Family Links program of literacy instruction for at-risk kindergarten students from Morse Street School in Freeport, Maine. Nine students from a classroom of 28 students qualified for and completed the program that provided before-school literacy instruction (including parent volunteers) for two hours each week for six months. Students in the experimental and control groups were measured (pretest and posttest) using the Morse Street Marker Book Assessment and the Reading Recovery Observational Survey. Four workshops for families of students were planned and implemented. Parents completed a survey. Results indicated that students in the experimental group achieved higher literacy development than their at-risk peers in the control group. Survey responses were extremely positive regarding all aspects of the program. (Contains four tables of data; an appendix contains survey instruments.) (RS)
