Kim, Young-Suk Grace; Piper, Benjamin – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
The linguistic interdependence hypothesis (Cummins, 1979, 2000) states that children's second-language (L2) proficiency is, to some extent, a function of their first-language (L1) competence. Previous studies have examined this hypothesis with focus on a unidirectional relation from L1 to L2. In the present study, we examined…

Barr, Christopher D.; Reutebuch, Colleen K.; Carlson, Coleen D.; Vaughn, Sharon; Francis, David J. – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2019
Beginning in 2002, researchers developed, implemented, and evaluated the efficacy of an English reading intervention for first-grade English learners using multiple randomized control trials (RCTs). As a result of this efficacy work, researchers successfully competed for an IES Goal 4 effectiveness study using the same intervention. Unlike the…

Zimmerman, Belinda S.; Rasinski, Timothy V.; Was, Christopher A.; Rawson, Katherine A.; Dunlosky, John; Kruse, Sharon D.; Nikbakht, Elham – Reading Psychology, 2019
This study investigated the efficacy of the Fluency Development Lesson (FDL) in improving reading achievement in primary grade struggling readers. 30 readers, enrolled in a summer reading clinic, participated in daily 40-min mini-reading lessons across 5 weeks. During the fluency lessons, readers practiced and developed their literacy skills…

Nese, Joseph F. T.; Farley, Dan; Anderson, Daniel – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2019
We used data from the 2014-2015 easyCBM assessment system to explore the applied reading intervention characteristics in a sample of 3,074 Grade 1 students (and 5,145 interventions) in school districts applying a multitiered systems of support (MTSS) framework. We describe the number of interventions, number of assessments, the intervention start…

Hall, Colby; Steinle, Paul K.; Vaughn, Sharon – New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, 2019
This paper reviews findings from four research syntheses that report the effects of academic language and/or reading interventions on language and reading outcomes for English learners who have or are at risk for learning difficulties. Studies included in the syntheses varied in research design and addressed multiple areas of reading and language.…

Briceño, Allison; Klein, Adria F. – Reading Psychology, 2018
The purpose of this study was to determine if first-grade English Learners made patterns of language related errors when reading, and if so, to identify those patterns and how teachers coded language related errors when analyzing English Learners' running records. Using research from the fields of both literacy and Second Language Acquisition, we…

Paige, David D. – Reading Psychology, 2018
This essay challenges whether or not the use of district money for Reading Recovery© (RR) instruction is an effective expenditure of funds that results in sustained improvement in student reading outcomes. As a Tier 3 intervention, RR provides expensive, one-on-one tutoring for first- and second-grade readers that is occupying an increasingly…

McCormick, Meghan P.; White, Hope; Horn, Elizabeth Parham; Lacks, Rachel Stephanie; O'Connor, Erin E.; Cappella, Elise; McClowry, Sandee G. – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2018
This study investigated the impacts of "INSIGHTS into Children's Temperament" on instructional support and math and reading skills in kindergarten and first grade classrooms with high levels of student shyness. "INSIGHTS" is a temperament-based intervention with teacher, parent, and classroom programs. 22 urban elementary…

Coyne, Michael D.; Oldham, Ashley; Dougherty, Shaun M.; Leonard, Kaitlin; Koriakin, Taylor; Gage, Nicholas A.; Burns, Darci; Gillis, Margie – Exceptional Children, 2018
A large body of research supports the efficacy of small group reading interventions for students in Grades K through 3. However, there are few studies evaluating the effects of supplemental Tier-2 intervention implemented within a response to intervention (RTI) or multitiered systems of support (MTSS) framework. The purpose of this study was to…

Savage, Robert; Georgiou, George; Parrila, Rauno; Maiorino, Kristina – Scientific Studies of Reading, 2018
We evaluated two experimenter-delivered, small-group word reading programs among at-risk poor readers in Grade 1 classes of regular elementary schools using a two-arm, dual-site-matched control trial intervention. At-risk poor word readers (n = 201) were allocated to either (a) Direct Mapping and Set-for-Variability (DMSfV) or (b) Current or…

Fisher, Anthony; Carlyon, Tracey; Peter, Mira – Teacher Development, 2017
Literacy skills acquired during the first years of schooling have been recognised as the key to students' learning success. However, despite the continuing efforts by the New Zealand government and teachers there is still a large proportion of students who struggle to become literate. To address this issue the Ministry of Education funded selected…

Michaud, Mélissa; Dion, Eric; Barrette, Anne; Dupéré, Véronique; Toste, Jessica – Reading & Writing Quarterly, 2017
Theoretical models of word recognition suggest that knowing what a word means makes it easier to learn how to decode it. We tested this hypothesis with at-risk young students, a group that often responds poorly to conventional decoding instruction in which word meaning is not addressed systematically. A total of 53 first graders received explicit…

January, Stacy-Ann A.; Lovelace, Mary E.; Foster, Tori E.; Ardoin, Scott P. – Journal of Behavioral Education, 2017
Strategic Incremental Rehearsal (SIR) is a recently developed flashcard intervention that blends Traditional Drill with Incremental Rehearsal (IR) for teaching sight words. The initial study evaluating SIR found it was more effective than IR for teaching sight words to first-grade students. However, that study failed to assess efficiency, which is…

Slade, Timothy S.; Piper, Benjamin; Kaunda, Zikani; King, Simon; Ibrahim, Hibatalla – Research in Comparative and International Education, 2017
Summer learning loss--decreased academic performance following an extended school break, typically during the period after one grade ends and before another grade starts--is a well-documented phenomenon in North America, but poorly described in sub-Saharan African contexts. In this article, we use the term "grade-transition break" loss…

Solari, Emily J.; Denton, Carolyn A.; Haring, Christa – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2017
Struggling readers who are in need of Tier 2 supplemental reading instruction within a multitier system of support (MTSS) or a response to intervention are defined as those who are performing in the bottom 20% in reading-related skills as compared with their classroom peers. An MTSS model is a framework for instruction that provides increasing…
