Recognition & Response: Findings from the First Implementation Study
FPG Child Development Institute
Researchers at the FPG (Frank Porter Graham) Child Development Institute recently completed a study on a new approach to teaching pre-kindergartners called Recognition & Response (R&R). Designed specifically for use in pre-k, R&R is based on Response to Intervention (RTI), an approach that is gaining widespread acceptance in schools throughout the country. R&R helps teachers use information they gather on children's skills to improve the quality of instruction for all children and to provide targeted interventions to some children who need additional supports to learn. This study offers the first evidence of the effectiveness of R&R for promoting language and literacy skills in pre-k children enrolled in community early childhood programs.
