Moore, Paula; Lysy, Daria C.; Bamford, Rosemary; Kimmey, Tonya; Rhodes-Kline, Anne K.
This report summarizes statewide findings about Maine's Reading Recovery (RR) program based on data from the 1996-97 school year. The information presented in the report includes a brief history of the program in Maine, school-level implementation of the program, demographic information about the children served, the amount of time children spent in the program, program outcomes, literacy achievement over the first-grade year, and information about classroom teachers' professional development in early literacy. At the end of the report, the Statewide Program Coordinator and Trainer of Teacher Leaders gives recommendations. The revised report differs from the original only where the "carried-over" children are concerned; after the initial report was published, additional data on these children were received that compelled researchers to reassess the outcome of this subgroup of children. The 1997-98 Revised Report and Evaluation Supplement focuses on the new data. The supplement explains that many RR students start the program as "second round" children, meaning they start the program after another child has exited (those with the greatest needs, "first round" children, are started first). Therefore, the second round children do not receive their first RR lesson until late winter or the early spring of their first grade year and the school year ends before they can complete the program. The supplement represents the first report to focus solely on the progress of such "carried-over" children. (NKA)
