Reading Recovery: CRAEA Site Report 2018-2019
Reading Recovery® is a short-term intervention that was developed by New Zealand educator Dr. Marie M. Clay. This intervention is designed for students who have the lowest achievement in literacy learning in the first grade. Students meet individually with a specially-trained teacher for 30 minutes each day for an average of 12-20 weeks. Students develop effective reading and writing strategies in order to work within an average range of classroom performance. 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 has a strong track record of preventing literacy failure for many first graders through early intervention.
