Reading Recovery begins with teaching a 30 minute literacy lesson to 4 individual students. These lessons will continue for 12-20 weeks, and then we will enter new students into the program. Reading Recovery teachers instruct several small groups of students in reading and writing during the remaining parts of our day. Students and groups are always changing based on student needs. The goal of our interventions is to offer instruction and support to students so that they develop a self-extending system in reading and writing and so that they reach grade level performance in reading and writing.
