What is the Reading Recovery program?

Reading Recovery Collections

Reading Recovery is an interventional initiative for low-achieving first-graders, supported by the Reading Recovery Council of North America. Reading Recovery is designed to help teachers identify first-graders having difficulty grasping the basics of reading and writing. After conducting an initial Observation Survey to measure student performance in six specific literacy tasks, specially trained Reading Recovery teachers provide a half hour of daily tutoring to individual students for between 12 and 20 weeks, depending on student need. As soon as the students can demonstrate the ability to perform independently in regular classroom work, the tutoring is discontinued.
