The Impact of Reading Recovery on the Reading Achievement of First Grade Students
Case, Marguerite
Online Submission
There are so many different intervention programs for educators to use to increase the reading achievement of below grade level students, that it can often be difficult to choose the appropriate one for the students. Most programs are scripted and are used with small groups of students. Reading Recovery is not a scripted program and is taught in a one-on-one setting. It is often criticized for its effectiveness due to the smaller number of students that are able to receive services. It becomes a matter of quantity of students over the quality of the instruction. The casual-comparative design was used with a quantitative research method to determine the effects of the Reading Recovery program on first grade students. The MAP test for the 2014-2015 academic year was the measuring tool used by the researcher for this study. The MAP test was given in the fall, winter and spring. The gains from the fall to spring of Reading Recovery students and students who received services through another program were compared. The results of the research showed that students who received Reading Recovery as their intervention program made higher gains in reading than students who were taught using another program.
