Many states are moving forward with the implementation of theCommon Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects. These Standards define knowledge and skills students need during their K-12 school years in order to be college and career ready at the end of high school. Although the Standards do not define specific methods or programs, an effective early intervention is critical for students already struggling with literacy learning.
Reading Recovery is a research- and evidence-based first-grade reading intervention that brings the majority of students with a complete intervention to grade-level performance within 12 to 20 weeks of daily 30-minute lessons. By helping struggling readers quickly catch up with their peers in Grade 1, Reading Recovery plays a vital role in ensuring that students can benefit from instruction at every subsequent grade level.
