America Reads Reading Recovery Right To Read = Quality Tutoring. A Pilot Program.
Cassidy, Jack; Linton, Thomas
This chapter is part of a book that recounts the year's work at the Early Childhood Development Center (ECDC) at Texas A & M University-Corpus Christi. Rather than an "elitist" laboratory school for the children of university faculty, the dual-language ECDC is a collaboration between the Corpus Christi Independent School District and the university with an enrollment representative of Corpus Christi's population. The chapter details an evaluation of a pilot model for reading tutoring, which was based on America Reads monies, incorporated aspects of Reading Recovery, and used some of the materials developed under the Right to Read program. Evaluation of the pilot program found it to be very successful based on students' reading scores on the Texas Assessment of Academic Skills (TAAS). Recommendations for tutor selection and training, format for tutoring sessions, and ongoing tutor support were also developed.(Contains 25 references.) (EV)
