Reading Recovery

"Reading Recovery is the best evidence yet of the direct link between good design and education excellence."
- K.G. Wilson and B. Daviss

The goal of Reading Recovery is to dramatically reduce the number of first-grade students who have extreme difficulty learning to read and write and to reduce the cost of these learners to educational systems. 

Reading Recovery is a highly effective short-term intervention of one-to-one tutoring for low-achieving first graders. The intervention is most effective when it is available to all students who need it and is used as a supplement to good classroom teaching. 

Reading Recovery serves the lowest-achieving first graders the students who are not catching on to the complex set of concepts that make reading and writing possible. 

Individual students receive a half-hour lesson each school day for 12 to 20 weeks with a specially trained Reading Recovery teacher. As soon as students can meet grade-level expectations and demonstrate that they can continue to work independently in the classroom, their lessons are discontinued, and new students begin individual instruction.
