ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Trevecca Nazarene College
Reading Recovery (RR), an early intervention reading program, is designed to push a lagging learner to accelerate. In this study, the researcher compared reading comprehension and fluency growth for struggling first graders who participated in a traditional reading program only as compared to those in a traditional program plus a RR program. The researcher compared the two condition groups by gender, ethnicity, and socio-economic status (SES). This study also examined the support of RR among stakeholders. Analysis of the statistical findings showed mixed results for the effects of RR as it pertained to reading comprehension and fluency. Results indicated that females scored significantly higher on reading fluency than did male participants. No significant difference among ethnicities or SES was determined. Finally, the researcher uncovered overpowering support among all RR stakeholder participants. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
