• A day as a Reading Recovery teacher at Boone Trail Elementary begins with teaching a 30 minute literacy lesson to 4 individual students.  These lessons will continue for 12-20 weeks, and then other students will come into the program. During the other part of our day, Reading Recovery teachers instruct groups of students in reading and writing.  Our student and group selections are always shifting and changing in order to best serve students.  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.
