The effectiveness of Reading Recovery literacy groups on first grade students

by Morrin, Sarah.

Abstract (Summary)
Dr. Cindy Hendricks, Advisor The purpose of this study was to determine whether Reading Recovery Literacy Circles improved students’ literacy skills. Students in a first-grade classroom were given a battery of tests in September. In October, the students were placed into small literacy groups. The groups followed the Reading Recovery intervention program format, adapted for small groups. Eight weeks of intervention passed and the students were tested using the same battery of tests to determine whether or not reading gains were made. The test scores were compared to another classroom of first grade students that did not participate in the literacy circles. The results indicated that there were no significant differences between the two groups. iii
