A study examined the results and effectiveness of the fourth year of the Reading Recovery program in New Hampshire. With the 65 Reading Recovery teachers from previous classes, 22 teachers in the new class, and 2 teacher leaders, a total of 89 teachers taught Reading Recovery during the 1993-94 school year. A total of 442 first-grade children identified as being at risk of reading failure were served. Results indicated that: (1) 373 (84%) successfully completed the program and were making at least average progress with regular classroom reading instruction; (2) both discontinued and program children attained scores on writing vocabulary, dictation, and text reading level measures which were within an average band; (3) children who were discontinued prior to April 1 continued to make successful progress on all three measures; and (4) the overall response from Reading Recovery teachers, classroom teachers, administrators, and parents on individual surveys was very positive and supportive. Recommendations include: maintain the integrity of the Reading Recovery program with a quality teacher training program for new teachers as well as continuing inservice sessions; ensure that children receive lessons daily; conduct follow studies on second and third graders; and encourage schools to develop a team approach to support literacy development for all children. (Contains 4 tables and 9 figures of data. A list of Reading Recovery teachers and schools for the 1993-94 year; a list of the Reading Recovery Teachers-in-Training 1994-95; and questionnaires for teachers, teachers-in-training, parents, and administrators are attached.)
