Baker, Scott; Gersten, Russell; Keating, Thomas
Reading Research Quarterly, v35 n4 p494-519 Oct-Dec 2000
Describes "Start Making a Reader Today" (SMART), a volunteer tutoring program that helps K-2 students at risk of reading difficulties. Finds that the program improved students' word reading, reading fluency, and word comprehension, though level of performance at end of second grade was still much lower than that of average-achieving students. Discusses issues regarding volunteer training and involvement. (SR)
