Lessons from Reading Recovery Lessons.
Running Record, v9 n1 p2-5 Fall 1996
Arising out of one reading clinician's journey through the training year in Reading Recovery, this paper articulates the content of the lessons learned and explores their implications for clinical reading practice. The lessons learned that are discussed in the paper are: (1) make no excuses for the learner or for yourself; (2) expect learning and teach "doggedly"; (3) watch your language (using the prompts and cues that are consistent with the overall philosophy and goals of Reading Recovery); (4) guard your lesson time as a valuable commodity; and (5) do everything possible to connect reading and writing. The paper concludes that Reading Recovery teachers learn, just like their students, that learning to do something complex requires focused attention, clear and consistent guidelines, practice, and the support of others.
