Examining the At-Risk Reader during the Elementary and Middle School Years.
Fazio, Michele Ann
The records of 27 sixth-grade students who were receiving special services were studied. A survey was conducted in three separate elementary schools to see if these same students were recipients of Basic Skill Instruction during the second grade. The data collection form included information about current reading grade levels and types of special education classification. Results of the refined population indicate 14 students received remediation in both the second and sixth grades. This population had the lowest reading levels within the sample population. Each student's classification and reading level is discussed. Implications for instruction are suggested. Contains 31 references. An appendix contains a suggested format for data collection.
