Reading Recovery in the Far Northeast.
Manning, Kathryn; Ervin, Robert
Network News, p6-8 Spr 1996
Two articles are presented on the implementation of Reading Recovery in Maine. The first article, "Collaborative Efforts Can Make a Difference: The Development of Reading Recovery in Maine" articulates and shares the process which took place in Maine in the hope that it will assist interested stakeholders in other states in the implementation of Reading Recovery programs. The first article discusses a successful collaboration in the making and then presents suggestions for others. The second article, "Reading Recovery: An Unintended Vehicle for Change," describes how the implementation of Reading Recovery in the Bangor Public Schools provided the impetus for improvement and the vocabulary to establish core understandings among teachers. It discusses shifts in teacher beliefs and practices; shifts in evaluation procedures; and shifts in "average" levels of performance. (RS)
