Reading Recovery® is defined more specifically below:
“Reading Recovery (RR) is the copyrighted name of a teaching method intended to promote rapid improvement in the reading skills of struggling first graders (Reading Recovery Council of North America [RRCNA], 2004). Students who are identified as reading significantly below grade level receive daily, one-on-one lessons from teachers who have received extensive special training, including at least one academic year spent studying with an RRCNA-registered “teacher leader” (RRCNA, 2004). Each RR teacher has no more than four students assigned to her/him at any given time (Collins, 1999). Lessons are half an hour long and typically continue for 12 to 20 weeks, after which a new student begins work with the RR teacher (RRCNA, 2004). Students who go through RR once generally do not go through it again (RRCNA, 2004). It is used most often with students who have learning disabilities and/or those who are “educationally disadvantaged” (Thomas, 1992).”
