Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1993 
57 p. 

A study examined the results and effectiveness of the third year of the Reading Recovery program in New Hampshire. With the 50 Reading Recovery teachers from previous classes, 32 teachers in the new class, and 3 teacher leaders, a total of 85 teachers taught Reading Recovery during the 1992-93 school year. A total of 422 first-grade children identified as being at risk of reading failure were served. Results indicated that: (1) 352 (83%) successfully completed the program and were making at least average progress with regular classroom reading instruction; (2) the other 70 children made significant gains but not enough to reach the average of their class; (3) the overall response of 87% of the 874 Reading Recovery teachers, teachers in training, administrators, other teachers in the building, and parents of Reading Recovery children who returned surveys was very positive and supportive; and (4) the percentages of the first-grade population in each district participating ranged from a low of 0.7% to a high of 27%. (Six tables and nine figures of data are included; a list of Reading Recovery teachers and schools for the 1992-93 year, a list of the Reading Recovery Teachers-in-Training 1993-94, and the end-of-year questionnaires for administrators, teachers in training, classroom teachers, and parents are attached.)
