Reading Recovery[R]. What Works Clearinghouse Intervention Report
What Works Clearinghouse
"Reading Recovery"[R] is a short-term tutoring intervention designed to serve the lowest-achieving (bottom 20%) first-grade students. The goals of "Reading Recovery"[R] include: promoting literacy skills; reducing the number of first-grade students who are struggling to read; and preventing long-term reading difficulties. The WWC identified 13 studies of "Reading Recovery"[R] for English Language Learners that were published or released between 1997 and 2008. No studies of "Reading Recovery"[R] that fall within the scope of the English Language Learners (ELL) review protocol meet What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) evidence standards. The lack of studies meeting WWC evidence standards means that, at this time, the WWC is unable to draw any conclusions based on research about the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of "Reading Recovery"[R] on ELL. (Contains 3 footnotes.)
