Reading Recovery[R] in Maine, 1991-94: State Report.
Maine Univ., Orono. Coll. of Education.
Reading Recovery is an early intervention program that helps low-achieving first-grade children to become independent readers who need no further remediation. Reading Recovery was introduced by Marie M. Clay who, in the mid 1970s, developed procedures with teachers and tested the program in New Zealand. In 1984, the success of the program in New Zealand led researchers at Ohio State University to introduce Reading Recovery to the United States. In February of 1990, Kathryn Manning, consultant to the Maine Department of Education, organized a group of 26 Maine educators to go to Ohio to see Reading Recovery teacher training in action. In the school year 1990-91, Maine teachers began to be trained in Reading Recovery. This state report delineates the implementation of Reading Recovery in Maine schools from 1991-94. The report is divided into the following sections: What Program Participants Say; Program Overview; Program Evaluation Results; Program Implementation; and The Reading Recovery Lesson. (Contains 11 references. Also lists Reading Recovery training sites in Maine.) (NKA)
