Reading Recovery is a research-based, short-term intervention of one-to-one teaching for the lowest-achieving first graders.
Reading Recovery students receive 30-minute lessons each school day for 12 to 20 weeks from a specially trained teacher.
As soon as students can read and write at grade level and demonstrate that they can continue to achieve, their lessons are discontinued and new students receive individual instruction.
The Ohio State University Reading Recovery Project affiliates with 24 teacher training sites in Ohio, Indiana, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. For more information about Reading Recovery, contact a teacher leader at a regional teacher training site.
