Reading Interventions for Struggling Readers in the Upper Elementary Grades: A Synthesis of 20 Years of Research
Wanzek, Jeanne; Wexler, Jade; Vaughn, Sharon; Ciullo, Stephen
Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v23 n8 p889-912 Sep 2010
A synthesis of the extant research on reading interventions for students with reading difficulties and disabilities in fourth and fifth grade (ages 9-11) is presented. Thirteen studies with treatment/comparison study designs and eleven single group or single subject studies were located and synthesized. Findings from the 24 studies revealed high effects for comprehension interventions on researcher-developed comprehension measures. Word recognition interventions yielded small to moderate effects on a range of reading outcomes. Few studies were located implementing vocabulary and multi-component interventions.
