How Much Reading Recovery Do We Need?
Noble, Jo Anne
Network News, p6-9 Fall 1995
In the report of her consultation visit to South Carolina, Dr. Marie Clay noted: "A school has reached full implementation when that school has sufficient hours of trained teacher time available to serve all the children defined by that school as needing Reading Recovery." This article explains how one teacher pursued local answers to the implementation of Reading Recovery, including a suggestion for reconfiguring classrooms to allow for additional teachers to be trained. The article takes the teacher through three years of classroom reading instruction and dealing with children with reading problems. Its aim is for teacher leaders around the country to use this information to develop their own methods for demonstrating the need for full implementation of Reading Recovery projects. Contains 4 tables and 7 references. (NKA)
