Sharing Our Visions along the Way.

The remarkable impact of Reading Recovery (RR) on current literacy programs--not only in Vermont and Indiana but throughout North America, as well as the potential for movement and change for greater numbers of children and teachers--is dramatic and impressive. This article states that responding to questions about RR success, seemingly a simple matter, is actually quite a complex endeavor when the many ways of judging success as well as the authors' roles and responsibilities for sharing it are considered. The article asks: What are the indicators of success and how do others learn of it? It suggests that these indicators range from a global viewpoint, which often emerges from outside the organizations, to a more local perspective: that of an individual RR child's success. The article proposes that, because the global interpretation of efforts is best characterized when it is based on accurate local information, RR educators should assume responsibility for sharing successes at both the global and local level. It discusses in detail sharing and communication; the global perspective; the local perspective; and why success must be shared at both the local and the global level. (Contains 13 references.) (NKA)
