Fox, Barbara J.; Wright, Maripat
Journal of Research in Rural Education, v13 n3 p165-69 Win 1997
In an exploratory project to enrich the reading experiences of 84 rural low-income first-graders, 15 female community members were trained to work with children in nontraditional and traditional activities that addressed reading-related skills. Student achievement test scores improved from exceptionally low reading achievement in the fall to low-average achievement in the spring. (Author/SAS)
