Herman Method[TM]. What Works Clearinghouse Intervention Report
What Works Clearinghouse
The "Herman Method"[TM] teaches reading in small groups of up to three students. The curriculum provides instruction in phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and reading comprehension, while also teaching spelling and writing. It contains 20 modules of instruction through a fifth grade level. Each module includes a reading, spelling, and handwriting component. The curriculum uses direct instruction and drill and practice exercises provided through different media, including flash cards, computer-based software programs, workbook exercises, and guided reading books. The "Herman Method"[TM] has been used with struggling readers, English language learners, and learning-disabled students. However, no studies of the "Herman Method"[TM] that fall within the scope of the Students with Learning Disabilities review protocol meet What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) evidence standards. The lack of studies meeting WWC evidence standards means that, at this time, the WWC is unable to draw any conclusions based on research about the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of the "Herman Method"[TM] on students with learning disabilities. (Contains 3 footnotes.)
